What a treat! First timers. We paid the $5 bucks to park. It was worth it so we didn't have to walk too far in the dark. We got there about 5:30 for the 8:00 show, plenty of time to relax before the fun began....More

Went on impulse to see a summer musical in a summery spot. The outdoor setting is unique with a nice view of the Bay from certain angles, beautiful trees, seats are all raked so the view of the stage is unimpeded. Arrived 30 minutes ahead...More

We attended a showing of Mama Mia. It was a very warm evening so no need for blankets, but location can be cold some evenings. FYI, for sections 2 and 4, the lower seat numbers are closer to the center section. But you can see...More

It's a must. Our family has been attending summer theater here for years and the quality of production continues to improve. Each season features 3 different plays usually for 3 different audiences so keep in mind some shows will have smaller children while some shows...More
