In 1943, a young couple, Ruth and Nathan Hale, headed further west from Salt Lake City, Utah to Glendale, California with the aspirations of beginning a career as actors. They quickly realized that the only way to pursue their dream was to open their own theatre. In 1947 they rented a small building in Glendale, and the Hale Centre Theatre was born. Although their opening night had an audience of just six, their little 110 seat theatre began to grow.
In 1964 they broke new ground and the 380 seat Glendale Centre Theatre was born to provide a one of a kind theatre in the round experience!
