Making at the Old Globe

There is a wide vein of making that pulses through the museums of Balboa Park. The Old Globe is an excellent example. As you’ll see in the pictures in this post, there is much to be admired. From stitching wardrobes and building acoustics to  making props and constructing sets, there’s a lot making going on to produce shows across three stages!

You can see this yourself through tours available every weekend
