The Saroyan Theatre is Fresno’s premier cultural arts destination and home to the area’s leading performing arts groups, including the Fresno Philharmonic Orchestra, Fresno Grand Opera, Broadway in Fresno, Valley Performing Arts Council and Lively Arts Foundation. The theatre also hosts a variety of comedy shows, concerts, family entertainment and community events. This historic 2,351-seat performing arts theatre recently underwent an extensive renovation, including beautiful front-of-house enhancements to the main lobby and VIP Lounge, as well as back-of-house upgrades with eight state-of-the-art dressing rooms and star rooms, two chorus rooms, two production offices and a green room with built-in bar and leather furniture – all while retaining the old-world charm of this iconic and elegant theatre named after Fresno’s own acclaimed Oscar and Pulitzer Prize winning author. The theatre features a VIP lounge off the main lobby and offers an enormous selection of superb snacks, cocktails, and desserts catered by Pardini’s Catering & Banquets – all of which can be pre-ordered prior to the show and ready at intermission. The Saroyan Theatre welcomes every performer and invites patrons to experience live entertainment in a grand style.
