Our Mission

The mission of the Presidio Theatre is to ensure that the magic of live performance is accessible to the entire community. By reawakening an architectural jewel in the Presidio and creating a professionally run venue that reflects the rich diversity of the Bay Area, The Presidio Theatre encourages artists to grow and flourish.

Board of Directors

Peggy Haas

Board Chair
Peggy Haas brings a lifelong passion for art and theatre to her role as Presidio Theatre Board Chair. As a longtime member of the Children’s Theatre Association San Francisco, Peggy is a performer and avid supporter
of artists and artistic institutions. In fact, her role as a performing artist gave Peggy first-hand experience with the challenges of finding affordable and modern spaces for small productions in San Francisco. Her vision for the Presidio Theatre emerged in the quest to find a truly community-based theatre, bringing her to a gem in the Presidio that had been shuttered for more than 20 years. Peggy’s tenacious commitment to breathing new life into the Presidio Theatre, and especially to providing San Francisco, its artists and audiences with a beautifully restored performing arts hub, is the lifeblood of the Theatre’s mission.
