TheHistory

Formerly known as "Ben Weed's Amphitheater," the Greek Theatre Berkeley was built in 1903. The project was orchestrated by Benjamin Ide Wheeler, the University of California president. It was the also the first building on campus to be designed by John Galen Howard. Newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst funded the construction, after whom the building was named. The theater's design is drawn from the ancient Greek theater of Epidaurus.

On September 24, 1903, the Greek Theatre Berkeley officially opened with the student production of The Birds by Aristophanes.

In 1982, the Greek Theatre became listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
