In 1905, the "bohemians” arrived in Carmel. Almost immediately, the Carmel Club of Arts & Crafts opened the town's first theatre and cultural center, the Arts & Crafts Clubhouse. It was located on the site of today's Circle Theatre of the Golden Bough!
Housed within the Golden Bough Playhouse below the main Golden Bough Theatre, with its own entrance on Casanova Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues, in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
A unique theatre-in-the-round, the Circle Theatre makes an ideal setting for experimental plays, original material, and other works enhanced by an intimate setting.
