The Old Globe is pleased to announce the full schedule for its upcoming partnership with four local community organizations: The Lipinsky Family San Diego Jewish Arts Festival and the Ken Jewish Community presenting La Obra (in Spanish), an exciting and lively production that showcases the unique dynamics of putting on a show; the San Diego Black Artist Collective (BAC) presenting The San Diego Black Arts Festival, an event that celebrates Black actors, playwrights, musicians, and artists; Melanin MeetUps presenting Illuminate: A Night at The Old Globe, a TED Talk–like series that invites like-minded individuals to share ideas for global action in the African American community; and Common Ground Theatre presenting Day of Absence, a “reverse minstrel show” that depicts a Southern town that suddenly faces the disappearance of all Black citizens.

These limited engagements will play for four total weeks from June 10 through July 7, 2024 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center in Balboa Park.

Financial support for The Old Globe is provided by The City of San Diego. The Theodor and Audrey Geisel Fund provides leadership support for The Old Globe’s year-round activities.
