Carrie Hamilton Theatre at Pasadena Playhouse
Carrie Louise Hamilton (December 5, 1963 in New York City – January 20, 2002, in Los Angeles) was an American actress, singer, and playwright. She was the daughter of comedienne Carol Burnett and producer Joe Hamilton. In July 2006, the former Balcony Theatre of the Pasadena Playhouse was dedicated the Carrie Hamilton Theatre in her memory.
The Pasadena Playhouse is a historic performing arts venue located 39 S. El Molino Avenue in Pasadena, California. The 686-seat auditorium produces a variety of cultural and artistic events, professional shows, and community engagements each year. A school of theatre arts was established in the late 1920s that became an accredited college by 1937, eventually training such notable talents as Raymond Burr, Victor Mature, Ernest Borgnine, Eleanor Parker, Charles Bronson, Mako, Jamie Farr, Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman, Sally Struthers and others.
