About Shelton Theater
An arts community in downtown San Francisco.
The Shelton Theater, founded in 1993 by Matt Shelton, hosts live performances of musicals, narrative plays, improv, poetry, solo performances, and concerts. Film screenings and contemporary fine art are exhibited as well. We provide artists with the creative respect they need and a venue within which to observe their works. There are two intimate venues of 74 and 60 seats. Literally thousands of performing artists have created works in these theaters since 1983 at 533 Sutter St. Get here.
We believe in the healing, illumination, and transformative power of art as we continue to create and inspire works of theatre, film, music, fine art and poetry. It is our belief that any great work of art contains a moral vision reflective of the human condition and highlights the value of the human spirit.
Who We Are
Cedric Wentworth-Fine Artist
In recognition of the prospective observer's desire to ascertain the professional quality of this institution and particularly to those who are new to the film and theatre communities and therefore unaware of the reputation of the Shelton Theater, we have produced the following list of former alumni/artists. We would like to state that it is our belief that many of the finest artists who have attended this institution do not appear on this list and many of their names might not be recognized. This list is by no means complete.
Alumni have won Academy Awards, Emmy Awards, Tony Awards, Obie Awards and countless local awards.
