Where Inspiration


We bring you the shows and acts you know you love, and invite you to try something new! Enjoy the finest performances from around the globe, accessible right here in your backyard.

Whether it’s a tribute band that takes you back to your glory days, a comedian who makes your sides hurt, or a toe-tapping musical whose songs stay stuck in your head, the diversity of our shows offers something for everyone. If you can sing to it, laugh at it, be amazed by it, or tap your feet along with it, you will find it on our stage!


The Clark Center was created to inspire, entertain, and educate our community through the power of cultural and performing arts. Bring your ideas and your imagination and let us show you the world!

Located in the charming hamlet of Arroyo Grande, our theater is a state-of-the-art hub for cultural and community productions, as well as a professional setting for vocational and educational events.

The Center consists of two state-of-the art theatres, the 617 seat Forbes Hall and the approximately 120 seat Studio Theatre. Both theatres are used for a variety of professional and community productions and are available to rent. The Grand Lobby is also a gallery for local artists, and The Annex addition is home to a beautiful green room, a scene shop, storage, and office space.
