Point Loma Nazarene University
Classic Revival

Greek Theatre Located on the campus of Point Loma Nazarene University, the Greek Theater is one of only three existing Greek theatres in the U.S. and was built in 1901 for Madam Tingley's Theosophical Institute. The Stoa Doa was completed soon after, and until the 1930s, many people enjoyed the elaborate presentations of the Theosophists who performed classic Greek and Roman works, works of Shakespeare, and other dramas. For a period, the theater fell into decline and disrepair. In 1973, Point Loma Nazarene University acquired the property and the restored theater was once again used for a wide range of dramatic performances, concerts, speakers, and commencements. Between 1997 and 1998, the University had the Stoa Doa completely renovated consistent with the original plans.
