Summer of Theatre

Summer of theatreThe free Summer of Theatre is a celebration of theatre and music presented under the stars at Saddleback College. It is an activity that encourages young and old alike to experience performances outside of a formal theatrical setting.

Unfortunately, due to lack of funding, the Summer of Theatre will not be offered in 2018! We hope to bring this free family-oriented Theatre under the stars back to Saddleback College in 2019.

We hope that you have enjoyed our past performances of such shows like Beauty & the Beast, The Music Man, Shrek the Musical, Marry Poppins, Little Shop of Horrors, Grease & more! Over 18,000 community members have attended the Summer of Theatre over the past four years! Last year, the Orange County Hot List ranked the Summer of Theatre at Saddleback College the sixth best festival in Orange County, beating out such events as the Newport Beach Jazz Festival, the Garden Grove Strawberry Festival, and others.

In the past, the Summer of Theatre has received fiscal support from the City of Mission Viejo and by some smaller donations from community members. We anticipate that we would need some significant Corporate and Private support in the future to bring this exceptional community program back for you and your families continued enjoyment.
