So many years of enjoying amazing shows!! So happy for the reserved lawn seats. Love taking the grandkids for a fun evening and so grateful that the Moonlight always provides an excellent "childrens" show each season. Sets and actors are very impressive. Great place to take a picnic and enjoy a lovely evening with family and friends. Great value too.

We love this venue. Going on third year season ticket holders. I recommend the orchestra sections. Bring a lightweight cover as it can chilly in the evening with the breezes. Never disappointed with performances.

For some years, now, my wife and I have enjoyed the Summer Musicals at the Moonlight Amphitheater...Some more than others, but always enjoyable. We always get the lawn seats. Recently, we opted for the reserved lawn seats and were lucky enough to get two of the best....We have become friends with the family next to us, as we are right... More

Fantastic outdoor theatre located in a beautiful park. Amazing musical productions with highly talented and professional performers. Many types of outdoor seating, areas to picnic, and a gourmet restaurant and bar on the grounds. Locals and visitors just rave about it. We always enjoy taking guests to the productions.

Moonlight is an outdoor theater that has Broadway quality shows. Yes, I have seen Broadway shows! The quality of the actors and singers are top notch and you are outside in the open air. The theater has such a cool vibe and I live close enough that I could walk to the shows. People that come to their first show... More

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!

My wife and I recently visited the Moonlight Amphitheatre to see a performance of “Titanic: The Musical” and were thoroughly impressed with both the venue and the production. The stage performances here are neither cheesy nor amateurish. Moonlight Stage Productions, the production arm of the amphitheater, is known for putting on well-staged, professional-level shows; the performance we saw confirmed that... More

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.
