Launched as the Vista Summer Theatre Festival in 1981, the theatre was then a partnership between the City of Vista and the Vista Unified School District. The City assumed management of the Amphitheatre productions in 1984 and since then has served as the Cultural Arts Program of Vista.
Today, Moonlight Stage Productions produces two distinct seasons in two venues in Vista: the 2000-person capacity Moonlight Amphitheatre in Brengle Terrace Park and the historic AVO Playhouse in the Vista Village. The Summer Season from June through October features four Broadway style musical theatre productions. The Winter Season from January through April features three shows ranging from plays to small scale musicals.
