It is a large outdoor Venue. Several types of seating, theater type, folding chairs for seating on the grass. There is food to be purchased and many take picnic baskets. Exceptional 4th of July activities, shows and fireworks. Good shows, musicals and specials. Easy parking with shuttles.

Great family activity. So wonderful sitting under the stars. We are disappointed that you can't bring in a bottle of wine, but they you can still bring in food but no glass. We have purchased the reserved seating and have very much enjoyed it.

Always enjoy coming here. Now you don't have to bring chairs as you pick one up upon entering. Great way to spend an evening with friends - lovely nights, some wine, picnic dinner - most bring their own or purchase there.

We love attending moonlight every summer for their plays. Bring your own blanket & have a picnic or you can reserve seating & purchase their food at the venue. Great place! Love it's out doors & you can look at the stars durning intermission. Great experience for any age group.

Big, big disappointment when they stopped allowing you to bring your own wine. They say it's a law, but that's not true - it's an agreement they have with the on-site restaurant

Every summer for 30 years we've enjoyed the Moonlight shows. Great reserved seating or lawn seating. Bring your fancy picnic or a Little Caesar's Pizza or sandwiches - and wine always goes well. Choose from 4 shows every summer and reserve early. New Director Steve Glaudini is bringing in new shows and new stagings for exciting evenings. Stop in soon!

We've been season ticket holders since 1989. Wonderful stage productions with very talented actors and musical talent. During every season there are plays that fit every family member...from children to seniors. Moonlight is a 'must see' attraction in Vista.

Outstanding theater outside, excellent acting and fabulous music! The 2015 season includes Shrek the musical. Parking is a bit of a challenge, make sure you wear comfortable shoes and clothing.

I have been coming here and watching my friends as a kid growing up here. It is such a wonderful place to watch the local talent and the weather is beautiful.

We have attended shows here for many years. The outdoor amphitheatre is great, acoustics are good and they put on excellent performances.
