Every summer the City of Vista hosts musicals at this venue and each summer they just keep getting better and better. The plays are mostly current and the productions magnificent. A great setting for enjoying musical theatre.

Attended "Sister Act"'with some friends who had never been there. It was so gratifying to see their expression when they saw the venue and afterward when they wanted to buy seasons tickets! It's a hidden treasure right here in Vista! Always a great time!

The musicals staged at the Moonlight Amphitheatre are produced by Moonlight Stage Productions and performed by local talent, so they are not part of a national tour. For show information you can check their website.
