Work With Us


Established in 1938, the Lobero Theatre Foundation has a stewardship role to maintain and operate the historic Lobero Theatre as a performing arts center and cultural asset to the Santa Barbara community, and to present the highest quality productions in music, dance and theatre. The organization has a $2.5 million operating budget, of which $1.2 million is expected to be raised through contributions.

The Lobero serves the needs of our 50,000 annual audience members as well as the artists who use the theatre. The Lobero stage hosts more than 20 local performing arts producers, schools, and presenters, including the Flamenco Arts Festival, CAMA,Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Santa Barbara Youth Ensemble Theatre, Santa Barbara Choral Society, State Street Ballet, New Noise Music Festival, and more.

In addition to operating the venue for the community’s use, the Lobero presents between 25 or more performances annually through our Lobero LIVE series in order to enhance the performing arts offerings available to local audiences. We also provide a diverse array of performing arts education opportunities to local youth.


Sometimes called “The American Riviera,” Santa Barbara has an environment of natural beauty, a fascinating history and a rich community of venues, artists and arts and culture organizations. Santa Barbara has twice the number of non-profits per capita as the average for California, second only to Marin County. This results in a wealth of volunteerism and philanthropy, but also tremendous rivalry for fundraising and ticketing revenue. Despite this perceived competition, Santa Barbara’s arts and culture community is marked by a great deal of collaboration and partnership.

Beyond the arts and culture sector, Santa Barbara is home to two universities, two colleges, and a number of other higher learning institutions. It has a state-of-the hospital and dozens of social service agencies. The temperate climate and quality educational facilities have attracted a number of tech-industry corporations, and tourism is a major driving factor of the local economy.

Compensation and Benefits

Lobero Theatre Foundation offers a competitive compensation package commensurate with experience and a comprehensive suite of benefits, including paid time off, medical, dental, vision, life insurance, and flexible spending account, all of which are 100% employer-covered. The company also offers a 403(b) program with employer matched contributions.

Transparency in US Health Coverage

Under the Transparency in Coverage Rule, issued in 2020 by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. Department of the Treasury and enforced from July 1, 2022, health plans (which includes clients who sponsor employee benefit plans) and health insurance issuers must publish two separate machine-readable files (MRFs).

This link leads to the machine-readable files that are made available in response to the federal Transparency in Coverage Rule and includes negotiated service rates and out-of-network allowed amounts between health plans and healthcare providers. The machine readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers to more easily access and analyze data.
