The Colligan Theater is available for rental when Jewel Theatre is not performing.


Jewel Theatre has a stunning venue to perform in — the Colligan Theater at the Tannery Arts Center.

Located at 1010 River Street in Santa Cruz, the Colligan provides a modern and comfortable facility with a large stage for the performing arts. Built by the non-profit Tannery Arts Center, Inc., and now owned by the City, the Colligan Theater at the Tannery opened in November 2015 in the renovated historic Hide House and is managed by Jewel Theatre Company. In addition to the theater, the Tannery Arts Center campus is the home of numerous artist studios, some of which are open to the public, and artist loft residences. More information about the Tannery campus is available at the Tannery website.
