“Amazing Venue and you wouldn't believe you it's still in Oakland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was essentially my back yard for three years. Located in excellent park and provides some great outdoor entertainment. This is another under utilized gem in Oakland! So many folks that have lived in Oakland for years that have never visited, such a shame. Located in Jaquim Miller Park with some amazing views. I've seen some cool events here, (weddings/graduations/movie shoot location). Worth a visit on a nice summer evening for a picnic and a show.

“Perfect in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is a hidden gem. We like to get there early and picnic prior to the performance. It is so much fun to be outdoors, see wonderful performances. Great escape, while staying in town. If you are new to the area, this is where locals go!

“Fiddler on the Roof at Woodminster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

What a great evening. This is only the 2nd time I have attended a play at this wonderful outdoor theater in the Oakland hills. What a jewel we have right here! We have season tickets, so will be back in August and September and soooooo looking forward to it.

Just remember to take a cushion to sit on (hard chairs), a blanket to cuddle in (it does cool down when the sun sets), and if you want, some wine or other libations and snacks. And a flashlight to find your way back to your car isn't at all a bad idea :)
