When an arson fire destroyed the the Old Globe Theatre in 1978, the first Festival Stage was constructed in just 100 days, allowing The Old Globe to present the summer season. In 1984 another arson fire destroyed this structure and a new theatre, the 605-seat Lowell Davies Festival Theatre was constructed to replace it.
Set against a backdrop of spectacular Balboa Park, nestled among beautiful eucalyptus trees, the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre has become a favorite with Globe patrons.
The outdoor theatre operates during The Old Globe’s Summer Festival (July-September) and is named after Lowell Davies, a former Board President and a major Old Globe supporter.
Please note: The Lowell Davies Festival Theatre is an outdoor theatre with stadium seating. We recommend that you dress warmly when attending performances. Cushions and blankets are available for a nominal fee (ID will be requested for rental.)
