OUR HOME: THE LT. G.H. BRUNS III MEMORIAL AMPHITHEATER

The Amphitheater is named in memory of the late son of Sue and George Bruns of Lafayette. Lt. George Bruns was born in Hollis, NY, on December 14, 1942. He came to California with his family at the age of seven, and attended Pleasant Hill High School, where he played football and took the North Coast Championship in Greco-Roman wrestling. At the Air Force Academy, he became the AAU wrestling champion. He earned a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Ohio State University. George rode Brahma bulls and saddle broncs, and loved to ride horses through the land where the Amphitheater now sits. Lt. Bruns was killed in June 1967, in an automobile accident just before he was due to ship out for service in Vietnam. California Shakespeare Theater honors the memory of Lt. George H. Bruns III with the Amphitheater, built in 1991.
