It's a must. Our family has been attending summer theater here for years and the quality of production continues to improve. Each season features 3 different plays usually for 3 different audiences so keep in mind some shows will have smaller children while some shows...More

Saw "The Producers." I previously saw it on Broadway, and my companion was familiar with the movie. We both enjoyed it immensely! Outrageous and hilarious. The theater itself is terrific for a summer evening - in Joaquin Miller Park amid tall trees. There is plenty...More

We have gone to Woodminster Amphitheater. Its in Joaquin Miller Park. Its an outdoor theater with reasonable ticket prices. There is parking by the theater. Since its in a park, we have enjoyed doing a picnic before the performance.

Woodminster is good for the occasional performance, but most of what they perform is old standards, many of them dated. The seating is marginally comfortable and the dining area is infested with yellow jackets. We don't go here very often.

This historic outdoor theater is in an incredibly beautiful setting in a redwood park. Go here to see a reasonably-priced classic musical on summer evenings. Walk to the theatre from below, along the lovely array of fountains, pools and waterfalls which adorn the path. These...More
