Wonderful Place for a Theatre

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.

I hear it from so many people - I couldn't believe that was tucked away in Vista. The shows are exceptional, very high quality. The atmosphere is great - an evening under the stars, enjoying a picnic dinner with friends, enjoying a show! You can purchase wine and beer there, but don't bring it in. It's guaranteed to please.

This is a wonderful venue. Great place to enjoy a picnic and a show. The shows are spectacular, with awesome actors & actresses. Musicals are the best around. A must do if you can!

This is a wonderful way to spend a summer evening. Plays are very professional. Staff is helpful and considerate. Bring your own dinner or buy it there. We have attended for over 15 years and never been disappointed. Shuttles provided from parking area. Evening air can get chilly.

The Moonlight amphitheatre is a delightful venue for anyone who loves musical theater. The tickets themselves are reasonably priced, and it also features an upscale café which is not so reasonably priced. However, you can bring your own dinner and picnic there.

Moonlight Amphitheatre is a wonderful venue. Being an avid theater-goer, I can unequivocally testify that their productions are of superior quality. The venue is comfortably sized, friendly, and lovely. One does, of course, have to be prepared for a variety of temperatures in an open-air setting from steamy some nights to chilly on others. The actors, singers, dancers and orchestra... More

I am so happy that an awesome, high class entertainment venue is located here in north county. Moonlight is a great place to see a show, preferably a play but anything really. I have to mark it down a tiny bit just due to the crappy parking. Make sure you arrive early! The whole venue is clean, beautiful and has... More

1st time at the moonlight amphitheatre - took my daughter to see Spamalot. Relaxed atmosphere, picnic dinners, lawn and reserved seating all along with an outstanding performance! Definitely will check to see what is playing there next time we visit the San Diego area.
