The Costume Shop Theater

An intimate, black-box performance space dedicated to new works, The Costume Shop is a versatile venue that houses an eclectic lineup of performances: from innovative A.C.T. Master of Fine Arts Program productions, to eye-catching work by local artists and performing arts companies.

Located just across Market Street from Civic Center's UN Plaza in the heart of San Francisco's lively Central Market arts neighborhood, The Costume Shop officially opened its doors at 1117 Market Street in fall 2011 as part of 24 Days of Central Market Arts.

Thanks to funding from grants from the San Francisco Neighborhood Arts Collaborative and The Kenneth Rainin Foundation, A.C.T. is able provide no-cost rehearsal and performance space to select local arts organizations.

Aurora Theatre Company presents


Written and performed by Bridget Quigg

October 6–22
A.C.T.’s Costume Shop

Does riding a tricycle to meetings make you seem more intelligent?
It can if you work in tech.

Join Seattle comedian Bridget Quigg for an evening of laughter as she spins her 11 years at start-ups into a celebration of the "quirks" of tech culture. Look forward to Quigg's signature mixture of games, stories, and music. Topics include the Agile Method, founders, recruiters, engineers, digital marketers, and outrageous snack options, like bone broth shots.

The show sold out in Seattle and received positive acclaim from Geekwire, NPR, Broadway World, and more. Bring your friends for an evening of fun at The Costume Shop on Market.
Performance Timing: 70 minutes, with one intermission.

Techlandia will take place at A.C.T.'s Costume Shop at 1117 Market Street, San Francisco.
