Welcome Center at the Bruns

Questions, enthusiasm, or feedback? We’re here for you. The Welcome Center, located on the plaza at the Bruns, is here to make your visit to the theater as enjoyable as possible. Ask what ’s happening with Cal Shakes, who’s giving the Grove Talk, or just say hi.

Story Hub

The Triangle Lab–Cal Shakes’ research and development wing–invites Bruns visitors to become part of the story. Visit our new Story Hub (right by concessions) to take part in interactive exhibits, watch video of our community programs, share your thoughts, and more.

Theater Store

While our on-site theater store has been replaced with the Story Hub, you can still buy Cal Shakes hats, shirts, and other gifts at Echo Grove in Orinda. Echo Grove is located at 2 Theater Sq. #112 Orinda, CA 94563.
