San Gabriel Mission Playhouse

The historic San Gabriel Mission Playhouse was constructed in 1927 for The Mission Play, by John Steven McGroarty, which told the story of the California Missions. In 1945, the City of San Gabriel purchased the playhouse and became a center of arts and culture in the ‘The Mission District’. This collection was digitized as part of the L.A. as Subject Digital Residency Program.
