It is with a great deal of excitement that Paper Wing Theatre Company announces that we're expanding our business! This means twice the shows, musicals, comedies, tributes, original productions, and rock events than before. We'll be taking over the former Stardust Playhouse space on North Fremont in Monterey, as well as maintaining our current theatre at the corner of Hoffman and Lighthouse Avenue in New Monterey.

This new space on Fremont will also be used for the newly formed non-profit Recovery Theatre, Inc., which will work with the recovery community to create a place for acting, singing, dancing, and theatrical arts.

Being an independent theatre, we rely solely on ticket sales and donations from people like you. We strive to bring you the best plays from Broadway, works from local playwrights, modernized classics, edgy and thought provoking pieces, and our own favorites such as semi-annual presentations of works like "Avenue Q" and "The Rocky Horror Show". But this takes your support!

Would you consider supporting our latest fundraising drive? We welcome any amount of support. Every bit you donate goes right back into maintaining and creating our theatre. We strive to continue to bring community theatre to the entire community of Monterey County. With your help, we can do it!

Please click here to make your donation online, or you may make checks payable to The Paper Wing Theatre Company and mail them to us at 320 Hoffman Avenue, Monterey, CA 93940. You may also donate via credit card by calling 831-905-5684 and completing your transaction with a live person. Thank you for your generous support!


Henry's BBQ Restaurant (401 Lighthouse Ave) is pleased to announce we've been voted Best BBQ Restaurant 2013 by readers of the Carmel Pine Cone! This is our fourth consecutive award - we're proud to have been the winner of this category since 2010.

The Carmel Pine Cone writes: "Henry’s stands as one of the few true barbecue joints left standing on the Peninsula. Locals love the mounded plates of tender, juicy, flavorful meats, including ribs, tri-tip, chicken, pulled pork or pork loin."
