Rooted in the European physical theatre tradition the Haste Theatre focuses on clown, physical expression, chorus and live music. The 2013 Spirit of San Diego Fringe was awarded to the Haste Theatre for puppetry, clowning, and a very naughty barbershop quartet.

We want to help your charity!

Community challenges can be better addressed when businesses and non-profits align their interests and pool their resources. We are happy to partner with charitable organizations to achieve common goals. The challenges that are most important to us are working to better the lives of youth, especially foster youth, and fighting cancer (because cancer is stupid). If you work with a not-for-profit organization that is working in either of these general areas please contact us to discuss how we might help you.
