If you like Musical Theater, you simply have to see a show or subscribe to a whole season of shows Every performance I have seen , (I am a season subscriber), has been top notch with amazingly creative staging on a circular stage with rotating levels that can be raised and lowered in sections. The orchestra is always perfect in... More

I truly enjoy this venue for special shows. The seating is great, not many bad seats. Fun atmosphere. Hardest part is the parking. Watch for early offers to buy tickets

We have been season subscribers to each Summer's "Music Circus" Theatre, as well as the Fall/Winter/ Spring's "Broadway Series" Theatre for many, many years. The California Musical Theatre staff do an absolutely impeccable job of selecting and producing each year's shows for their two theatres. Without a doubt, these are the best shows around. Treat yourself, and enjoy...

It's Summer and that means MUSIC CIRCUS. It's another great season and I am looking forward to the next performance.

They used to call this theatre the "Music Circus" and it was held outside in a large circus style tent in Sacramento, CA. My mother would go to visit her brother and his family every summer especially to go to the musical shows there. She would rave about how wonderful it was. After hearing the theatre is now held in...

Inexpensive, no bad seats, great variety of shows during the season, excellent casts/productions. I've been going to music circus for about 50 years. I have enjoyed almost every production I have ever seen. I especially enjoy them now that the "tent" is air conditioned and there are plenty of restrooms. This year has been especially entertaining so far. We just... More

This was our first time at Music Circus. I like the fact that it is a Theater in the round and the cast goes up and down the aisles so you really feel like you are part of the play. It doesn't seem like there are any bad seats in the house. Also the stage revolves and goes up and... More

This was my first time seeing this musical and my friend was skeptical about how to do CHORUS LINE in the round. It was fantastic and riveting from start to finish! The things I wish for most that the people who insist on bringing food (you can do that???) into the theater bring out their trash rather than creating a... More

This is the fourth or fifth season of Music Circus we will attend. Even the least expensive seats against the wall are good seats. The theater is round and the stage will turn at times during a performance so you always have a front row and feel as if you're part of the action. The performances are top quality and... More

This is definitely the best theatre in Sacramento. It is a relatively unique experience, as professional theatre in the round is rare. Usually the options are community theatre in a round or black box theatre, which gives the more intimate experience - OR - professional theatre in the traditional proscenium stage which is presentational but a higher quality.
