Live theatre in Stockton. It began with the Gold Rush! First it was the Stockton Theatre for the rough and tumble sailors and miners of 1853. In 1911, when folks became more civilized, the great Sarah Bernhardt performed “La Dam Aux Camelias” at Yosemite Theatre. In 1923, the Masonic Music Hall opened a large auditorium on its top floor — all for live theatre!
