Covid-19 policy: In keeping with the practice of theaters

The Beverly Theatre Guild appreciates your compliance.

10 Musicals in 10 Minutes

The Beverly Theatre Guild stands in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters during this time of mourning and protest.  BTG stands behind the rights of the many persons who are peacefully demonstrating for justice.  We have always welcomed all persons, regardless of gender, race, color, creed, or sexual/gender orientation, and deplore discrimination of any kind.  We understand that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  We will continue to be a safe space for actors to express themselves artistically just as we have for the last 60 years.  We see, we hear, we march, we love.
