“First class theater”

Moonlight Ampitheatre
Ranked #1 of 32 things to do in Vista
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Summer Moonlight amphitheater is first class musical theater in a pleasant outdoor setting. Vista's weather is beautiful, though cool at night in the park and a jacket/sweater is always advisable. The music and acting are as good as any you will see, and a great surprise for a civic theater. The stage, sound and lighting is state of the art. If they are performing a show that interests you, don't miss it, as it will rival in quality anywhere else.

Parking can be difficult for the elderly, as it requires an uphill walk across lawn. However, buses are available as well as disabled parking.

Dinner is available, or you can bring your own picnic dinner. However, alcohol (beer and wine) must be purchase within the facility, and you can no longer bring your own. Reserved seating available as well as lawn seating, for which they provide the chairs.

Musical Theater? Don't miss the Vista Moonlight Ampitheater experience.

The venue was re-done a few years ago. The acoustics are excellent, and the sight lines very good. A plus is that you can bring your own food and soft drinks.

A really good play, replete with costumes and scenery, is a lovely way to spend an outdoor evening in the summer. Bring a sweater and bug spray, if you're sensitive!

Summer productions at the Moonlight are part of the California experience not to be missed. State of the art sound and lighting, talented actors, professional sets all add to the experience. Bring a picnic for the lawn seating, gates open 90 minutes before show time (folding chairs provided for free), or get reserve stadium seating. The Artisan Cafe takes reservations for gourmet 3 course dinners (they even have a smoker), or you can get an array of sandwiches and snacks at the snack bar. Excellent selection of beer and wine at reasonable prices. We have been season subscribers for over 13 years.

The Wizard of Oz runs thru Aug. 10 and is a great family show with amazing special effects; Young Frankenstein Aug 21-Sept 7; The Who's Tommy Sept 18-Oct. 5

Moonlight Amphitheatre is a community experience with stellar professional performances. The venue is beautiful, the productions amazing, and the sense of community welcoming. Season tickets are a must if you live in the region. Don't miss a performance
