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.

Inexpensive summerstock type venue in pretty setting in Oakland Hills. Classic musicals done by some young professionals with lots of community participation. Fun family atmosphere. Kids welcomed.
