It’s opening night for The 39 Steps! Our season is off and running and we can assure you that this show will be nothing like you have ever seen! There are over 150 characters played by four actors; they change costumes, dialects, and scenes at the drop of a hat and weave a story of mystery and humor. The New York Post calls it “the most entertaining show on Broadway!”
We want to tell you about some of the exciting changes coming to Hillbarn very soon. The bathrooms and lobby are getting remodeled! Yes, that’s right! With the construction underway, there are a few things we need to make you aware of:
Access to the Theatre
Since the main entrance and lobby are under heavy construction, the only way to gain access to the lobby is through the parking lot behind the building. There is a pathway from the back, through the courtyard, and into the lobby.
Parking for performances is the same as usual, with the main section of parking being in the back of the building.
The temporary Box Office will be located in the lobby during construction. The Box Office will be located on the right as soon as you walk through the lobby doors.
The lobby will be a bit smaller during this show, but will still house the Box Office and Concessions. The Box Office will be located on the right when you enter and Concessions will be in its usual location.
During the construction, portable bathrooms have been placed in the courtyard for patron use. There is a handicap accessible portable and there are also sink stations so that hands can be washed.
The bathrooms are scheduled to be finished during November. So by the time you join us for White Christmas in December, the new facilities will be open and normal use of all spaces will resume.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 650.349.6411 ext. 2.
Our bathrooms and lobby will be new and improved by the time you join us for White Christmas. Thank you for your understanding as we remodel this gem of the Peninsula.
I hope you will join me as we continue our 74th Season with The 39 Steps; and AWAKEN yourself to the beauty, magic, and masterful art that is, and will continue to be Hillbarn Theatre!
See you at the show!
