Moonlight Stage Productions recently celebrated the start of its 35th anniversary summer season with the opening of the Elvis-inspired Broadway musical All Shook Up. For many Vista residents, the summer season brings the start of the annual summertime tradition of picnic suppers and shows under the stars at the Moonlight Ampitheatre. Nestled into a hillside of Brengle Terrace Park, the Amphitheatre’s picturesque surroundings include an audience sitting area framed with tall eucalyptus trees and plenty of lawn space. From July 15 to Aug. 1, Moonlight Stage Productions will be showing the great American classic The Music Man featuring Broadway’s David Engel and special appearances from the marching bands of Rancho Buena Vista High School and Vista High School. The remaining shows of the season will be Shrek: The Musical and Big Fish. For more information call 760-724-2110 or visit www.moonlightstage.com.
