I've never seen a bad show in this amazing theatre in the round. There are no bad seats. This is a real summer treat. Be warned, tickets have lots extra fees added on.

Music Circus, now out from under its tent and presented in the wonderful theater-in-the-round Wells Fargo Pavillion, is consistently excellent, and sometimes absolutely amazing. We have been lucky enough to have enjoyed musicals in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Long Beach and other locales,...More

Love the California Music Circus and Broadway Sacramento; so much so that we're season subscribers. That said, 'On the Town' fell really short. The story was very disjointed and did not flow. Really did not enjoy it; however, Jennifer Cody as Hildy Esterhazy was really...More

Saw The Hunchback of Notre Dame this summer and thought it was magnificently staged. The director's concept was creative and innovative. I loved seeing an actor from Deaf West. I was a huge fan of Deaf West's Spring Awakening. I'd love to see Music Circus...More

Every summer, for over 20 years, I've spent Tuesday nights under what used to be the Music Circus Tent, now it's the Wells Fargo Pavilion. My daughter, my sister, my friends, and colleagues have shared the same seats, with me, that I sat in when...More

This is a great play, the music is fantastic and the story takes you back to when Motown started and how it evolved throughout the years. This is a must see play.

I am a Sacramento native who now purchases season tickets every summer. The Music Circus has come a long way from the circus tent I use to visit as a child. The Wells Fargo Pavilion is a wonderful venue to watch a performance. With the...More
