The Kanbar Center has established a strong and well respected reputation within the community as a Center for the Performing Arts in Marin County. Originally known as CenterStage, this performing arts department within the Osher Marin JCC has been presenting a stunning lineup of world-class performances from emerging and established performers annually since 1990. Venues include the grand Hoytt Theater, the intimate Kurland Lounge and Swig Field, our outdoor venue nestled against the hills of Marin and home of our celebrated Summer Nights festivals.
Performances run the gamut from classical to world music, dance to comedy, lectures and film to culinary demonstrations. Our Club J events offer a club experience feel with plenty of room for dancing, mingling and fun. We also host an ongoing series of lively children’s shows on Sundays with The Buddy Club.
In addition to all of this, our beautiful spaces are the ideal place for a variety of rental applications including weddings, fundraisers, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, and life celebrations.
We invite all to come celebrate with us.
