MainStage Friday 2/16/2018 - 3/4/2018

Villainy in the Vineyard - Another World Premier Musical Melodrama comes first to San Juan Capistrano! Welcome to the ultimate audience participation old west Melodrama. Discover the mystery and mischief, the schemers and dreamers and applaud the heroes and heroines as you learn the fate of the local Vineyards in this seldom told story. Before the great grape blight of 1886 there were over 50 vineyards in what woudl be Orange County. Come learn the mostly true story of a vineyard, its heroine, and those scheming to take her land. Remember … everything happens for a Riesling. Fun for the whole family! Life is a Cabernet my friends!

"What did the grape say when he got stepped on?"
"Nothing really ... he just let out a little wine."


The Director, Gary McCarver, is once again bringing a unique old-west musical melodrama loosely based on the true history of Orange County. If you are looking to throw foam rocks at villains and love old style piano playing this is the play for you and your entire family! A puny, funny, and fast paced play. Gary almost named this "Grapes of Wrath" but less melodramatic minds were in the room at the time. Thanks Beverly.
