I saw All Shook Up and it was wonderful. It's a small theater so any seat is a good seat. First time here and will definitely be back. Trolley will drop you off and pick you up at the depot across the street.

If you are visiting Orange County, Laguna, or New Port, or are a local, and you love music, Ekvis and great dancing go see this super play. The same producers took Foot Loose to Briadway. A great young cast, so we'll directed and prepared. Laguna Play House continues to bring top notch shows to this great theatre in its 96... More

One thing I've got to say about this local theater: they don't just recycle the old favorites like most small theaters. They try new playwrights with some frequency. They're not perfect shows, but hey, you're in a small town--adjust your expectations. I've seen two shows there with interesting celebrity premises--one about Lucy and one about Barbra Streisand. The latter had... More

OK. Maybe this is wonderful venue. We will never know. As visitors, we have called twice to seek information about ticket availability. Twice, no return call even though we called during posted hours. Our money and time were taken elsewhere.

My wife and I were first time visitors to this venue and attended this Sunday's matinee performance. We used the convenient pay parking lot behind the theater, had a glass of wine before the performance, and enjoyed the two hour long musical story of Louis and Keely. Now we are looking for another playhouse performance that we can work into... More

We were surprised at the new look of the Playhouse. We had not renewed our season tickets for a few years but when we experienced the New Theater we will again be supporters. Act Three (the current olay) was a single act comedy and very enjoyable especially with the new seats.

I have been to the Laguna Playhouse a few times over the years. The last two times were to see Val Kilmer in his one-man show on Mark Twain and last night to see the great humorist, David Steinberg. I mention these two shows because this stage and theater size are well suited to monologue performances. I am not sure... More

This little theater is cozy and gracious...never a bad seat in the house. Shows are top notch and often feature well known actors. Have been coming here for years and always enjoy it. Adjacent to the art festivals and a short walk to the beach. Go early and have dinner or lunch at any of the nearby restaurants. Refreshments served... More
