The Forest Theater Guild is a local non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting the performing arts in our old-forest-theatre-guild-logocommunity. One of the oldest outdoor theaters west of the Rockies, the Forest Theater and the Forest Theater Guild was founded in 1910 by Herbert Heron and Carmel's Bohemians to provide an open-air theater experience where plays could be produced by "locals who also have fun doing the acting, directing, lighting, costuming, and staging," wrote Heron is a personal letter. With support from foundation grants, the City of Carmel, local citizens and businesses, and visitors, the Guild plays a pivotal role in a magical collaboration that keeps the vision of its early founders alive today.
