HISTORY OF THE HARBOR PLAYHOUSE COMMUNITY THEATRE Tracing its history back to 1925, the organization now known as Harbor Playhouse Company began with a newspaper advertisement for performers interested in being on stage. Producing an average of four plays a year until the Depression, the group reformed in 1935 under the name Little Theatre Corpus Christi. On August 4, 1948, the Little Theatre Corpus Christi was incorporated, and in 1976, the name was officially changed to Harbor Playhouse Company. Today, the Harbor Playhouse, a 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) non-profit organization, operates out of a space in the Bayfront Plaza, which includes a proscenium theatre that seats 454 and a studio theatre which can hold up to 150. Annually, more than 250 volunteers are actors, technicians, and support staff. Volunteers range in age from 8 to 80 and reflect the cultural diversity of the area. With a diverse schedule of contemporary and classic musicals, non-musicals, and children's plays, Harbor Playhouse truly presents exceptional works of art by the community for the community. To foster learning, excellence and pride among volunteers and audiences, the highest artistic standards are always maintained in productions. We are proud to be a part of the artistic heritage of the Coastal Bend, and as we look to our future, we know that we must depend on the support of our community in order to remain an integral part of the arts in South Texas. The purpose of Harbor Playhouse Company ( HPC ) is to provide and perpetuate high quality, live theatre on a financially stable basis with a consistent yearly schedule of productions affordable to the public ; to provide local talent of all ages and backgrounds a medium for creative expression and educational growth ; to provide the public with theatre appreciation and enjoyment of a variety of theatrical styles, which also preserve and shares our ethnic heritage, thus preserving and enriching the artistic and cultural base of the community.
