The Transcendence Theatre Company is a 501c3 nonprofit professional regional theatre company in Sonoma, California that specializes in producing Broadway Concerts and Musicals in the majestic open-air ruins of a historic winery in Jack London State Historic Park as well as in venues throughout Sonoma County.
Recently named Theater Of The Year by Broadway World San Francisco, the company is made up of musical theatre artists with Broadway, National Tour, International Tour, Film, and Television credits.
Through an innovative arts + parks partnership, Transcendence is partnering with a nonprofit park operator, the Valley of the Moon Natural History Association, to bring live theater and cultural education programming into Jack London State Historic Park.

We are a performing arts organization working towards the creation of a powerful and sustainable theatrical model, which we define as the balance and success of our four commitments to art, community, health, and the environment.
ART - We commit to producing exceptional theatrical experiences in all that we do. From fully produced musicals to intimate exchanges with our community, from new works to old classics, we acknowledge that the success of our work lies in the moments we create.
COMMUNITY - We commit to building our company from the fabric of our community. Through programs of service, we look to inspire both on and off stage as we maintain a profound relationship between audience and artist.
HEALTH - We commit to taking responsibility for the health and well-being of both ourselves as artists and our entire organization. We remain active in creating a healthy company culture that fuels and supports our work as we stay committed to maintaining a professional theatre company with the highest standards of fiscal responsibility and artistic excellence.
