Camino Real Playhouse has announced its 2019-2020 season

A word from Leslie Eisner

This being our 30th season, it was important to find the right mix of shows that offer thought-provoking drama, suspense and laughter.

This season boasts beloved characters and brilliant new voices who will whisk you away to the world’s most thrilling places and spaces. From Murder on the Nile, a classic whodunit to Young Frankenstein, a hilarious monster musical comedy, we wanted there to be something for everyone. We will bring you laughter with The Nerd, villains and heroines with Showdown at Rainbow Ranch, a sentimental holiday favorite with A Christmas Carol and 7 new works with ShowOff! 2020, our international playwriting festival. It was important that our Stage II line-up was just as exciting and so I have chosen a world premiere Sherlock Holmes work entitled Here There Be Dragons, a hilarious comedy, The Red Velvet Cake War and the inspirational and moving The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.

Please join us for the 2019/2020 season - we promise that it will be a season to remember!

About the Future of Live Theatre in San Juan Capistrano

A word from Tom Scott

The City Council made a decision on Tuesday, May 16th 2017  to select Frontier Real Estate to purchase and develop the Playhouse Property and adjoinging parking lot.  This choice clearly brings Maximum Public Benefit to our town -- head and shoulders above all other bids! 

It includes an Underground Public Parking Structure with 250 spaces! ​It will be ringed by quaint shops and restaurants on ground level. It includes a beautiful public open-air plaza! ​It has boutique office space available. ​It respects the Historic Town Center Master Plan. It includes a 250 seat Performing Arts Center. The date for the beginning of this new construction is yet to be determined. We will let you know as soon as we get the word form the City and Frontier Real Estate.

Contact Tom Scott for details on the future. Tom@CapistranoCenter.com or his direct line 949-842-1321
