Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Center Background and History:
The Civic Arts Plaza was a 1994 addition to Thousand Oaks with the intention of broadening Thousand Oaks theatrical and performing arts scope. At a cost of $63.8 million, the Plaza contains two theatres; the Fred Kavli Theatre and the Jay and Ray Scherr Theatre, as well as a 4-acre Plaza Park and another 10,000 feet of outdoor plazas. It is a bustling entertainment center full of good shopping, food, and fun.
It sits on the location of the previous Jungleland, Thousand Oaks ' 1968 version of Disneyland or Knott's Berry Farm. Today the Civic Arts Plaza has a focus on natural colors and a rich variety of textures, making for a very organic and yet highly technical feel. Architects Antoine Predock of the Dworsky Associates incorporated an enormous pictograph of a constellation constructed with Lucite rods and windows in the shapes of a condor wing and snakes that honor the passion for animals that served as the foundation for Jungleland. A stunning copper curtain made of more than 2,000 pieces decorates the Fred Kavli Theatre, as well as Italian granite and beautiful Ipir wood paneling.
Indian sandstone covers end-to-end the walls of the Forum Theatre, while more than 8,000 bricks are laid out in the courtyard. To complement the lovely array of materials, 249 trees and more than 9,000 shrubs were planted in the Fred Kavli Theatre . The result is picturesque and serene. If you've not been to see an event at the Plaza, the amount of thought put into its décor and ambiance are reason enough to visit at least once.

"I wanted to take my daughter to a show she would love, and you guys suggested we see the Velveteen Rabbit at the Fred Kavli Theatre. I'd been there before to see a symphony with my husband, and was well aware of the beauty of the Fred Kavli Theatre . But I had yet to try it out with my daughter. It was such a great show for kids, I was impressed that a theatre could put on a symphony that my husband could enjoy, and then a show my five year old daughter would love also! Thank you so much for the wonderful seats. We were right up front, and I'd never seen my daughter so engaged before. I will definitely be recommending you to others as well!!
