Moonlight Stage Productions

Moonlight Stage Productions, an award-winning regional musical theater, is located in the North San Diego suburb of Vista, California.

Dining Options

Moonlight Amphitheatre



Picnicking at the Moonlight Amphitheatre is one of the most unique theatre-going experiences offered anywhere. Pack your own picnic supper and head to the Moonlight this summer, but leave the chairs at home because we provide them for you - free as part of your lawn seating ticket. For each musical, the gates open 90-minutes before showtime so that you can savor the experience of attending a Moonlight production: expansive green lawns for picnicking, socializing with family and friends while enjoying your picnic supper, taking in the sunset, then enjoying a breath-taking musical. This is the magic of the Moonlight!
