If you enjoy live entertainment, this is the place to see and hear it. The productions are as good as you could find anywhere. The open air atmosphere is wonderful. Great sound quality and the production is first class.

My wife and I had our first visit to the Moonlight Amphitheater to see Titanic: The Musical. What a fun experience! We had general lawn seating which was great. We were able to spread out and and just enjoy the trees and eachothers's company. They let us in 1.5 hours before the show. We wanted to make reservations for dinner... More

This is great place to see a show. You can bring a picnic and enjoy one of the four summer musicals they put on. The shows are professional and very well done, highly recommend for some culture in north county.

We had not been to this venue so we bought the "expensive" tickets; the theater style seating. While these were comfortable enough for the show they are not too suitable for a pre-show picnic and we ended up taking our food and drinks to the lawn area right in the back of the venue. That area is on a bit... More

We have been season ticket holders for 4 years now and really enjoy all of the musicals. The sets are sometimes from the LA productions. Cast members are always very talented. A great value for the money and wonderful way to mark the summer season.

My husband and I can hardly wait every summer for the new season to start. What a great idea to have "Reserve Lawn" tickets now, as well as first-come-first-serve lawn. It sure makes it easier than having to get to the theater early/ stand in line in order to grab a good section of lawn. Wish they still allowed "bring... More

Usually very good productions. Parking is on dirt and a long walk to the theater. They do have a shuttle but it gets crowded. Productions that we have seen (4) are very good. The actors should be commended for their excellent acting.

Great venue for a casual Summer night entertainment. Just saw "Sister act". Excellent performance. Take dinner or snacks to enjoy on the lawn seating or reserve a seat and just enjoy the evening.

Every production is nothing short of a thrilling experience. I wish I could feel about the Hollywood Bowl the way I do about Moonlight Amphitheatre. It's small, comfortable and fun to watch a show under the stars. Steven Glaudini is a top notch artistic director and director. The space is easy to move around in, there is little or no... More
