An Important Word About Our Season
from our Founder Tom Scott

In response to COVID-19 and the recent notification from the City of San Juan Capistrano declaring a local emergency and ordering the postponing or cancellation of gatherings over 250 persons and smaller assemblies that do not allow social distancing of six feet per person, Camino Real Playhouse has chosen to postpone the next two shows of our current season. If you hold tickets for The Nerd and/or The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time your tickets will be transferred to the new production dates in June and July. Looking to the future - we will be announcing our 2020-202 Season soon! On behalf of our Management Team and our Board of Directors we thank you for your continued support.

Your donations are appreciated to help keep the lights on without any ticket sales during this time.

Young Frankenstein
Main Stage 5/22/20 to 6/7/20


From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster musical comedy. The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein! Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor and a leggy lab assistant, Inga, Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. "It's alive!" he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity abounds.

Directed by Dan Blackley

The Nerd
Main Stage New Dates: 6/26/20 to 7/12/20


This hilarious comedy is loaded with fun surprises! It’s late 1979 in Terre Haute, Indiana and our young architect, Willum, is celebrating his thirty-fourth birthday. He has an unexpected visit from a fellow ex-GI, Rick Steadman, who he has never met but did save his life during service in Vietnam. Initially Willum is delighted, however, Rick's awkward manner and inappropriate behavior throw the occasion into shambles cause quite the social dilemma.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time follows the story of Christopher Boone, a teen who is exceptional at Math but finds people and any kind of change confusing. The play opens with Christopher discovering a dead dog in his neighbor’s garden. A fan of Sherlock Holmes, he decides to write a story about the mystery of the dog’s death. His sleuthing uncovers far more secrets than he or any of us expect.
