This is a small live theater in Merced. But the talent is nothing short of spectacular. We have gone here many times as a group and my husband and I have gone together many times. Never a disappointment. When you go, tell Rob Vicki says hi! You might even see some of the stage items we donated to them.

Most recently, I went to see "Out of the Woods". It's a sort of Beach Blanket Babylon musical combining elements of Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and other well known fairy tales. Playhouse Merced's rendition was really fun, and the venue serves wine, beer and light snacks. It''s a small theatre so all the seats are good,... More
