We saw Les Miserables at this very accessible theater in downtown Vista (free parking was available very close-by). Everything was functioning perfectly for this popular musical play performed by local actors. Some of the young children actors were super-talented!

Great Shows in a small theatre - an old quonset hut! Comfortable seats- and our third-row season tickets suit us just fine! Sound and sets are well-done. Check out their shows and visit soon!
