Always thought Vista was pretty much a backwater. Then we moved here. Moonlight theatre has great shows, is very accessible and reminds me of Wolf Trap in Northern Virginia, just smaller but run very well.

Great venue outside tucked into the hills of vista. You can reserve a seat or sit on the grass. Bring food or buy from the many venders. The plays I've seen have been musicals. Nice night out.

A hidden jewel in the middle of Vista in San Diego North County . A wonderful place to meet family and friends for some dinner, fellowship and great entertainment.

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.

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.
