They produce large-scale musicals every year in Walnut Creek, California in the Del Valle Theater and in the Hofmann Theatre at Dean Lesher Regional Center for the Arts. It was created in the late 1950s by a group of local theater enthusiasts and has grown into a million dollar company. Diablo's main rehearsal space is at the "Fire House" in Pleasant Hill, California.
