        OnStage Theatre was founded in 1978. Its first venue was a back room of Dan's Bar in Walnut Creek. In 1982, the company resided in the old Pleasant Hill School House, until the building was condemned in 2008.   

       Since then, they have performed at a variety of theatres, including the Lesher Center for the Arts (Walnut Creek) and Cue Productions (Concord).  

​      Since the Fall of 2013, Onstage Theatre has taken up residency in the Martinez Campbell Theatre.
