We saw Les Miserables at this very accessible theater in downtown Vista (free parking was available very close-by). Everything was functioning perfectly for this popular musical play performed by local actors. Some of the young children actors were super-talented!

Great Shows in a small theatre - an old quonset hut! Comfortable seats- and our third-row season tickets suit us just fine! Sound and sets are well-done. Check out their shows and visit soon!

The Avo was originally an older movie theatre but has been remodeled beautifully into a great performance venue. Not a bad seat in the house. Many great productions from a variety of groups. There are many dining options near the theatre so you can spend an evening in downtown Vista.

Love the Avo Playhouse. I watched the play Annie here once and very much enjoyed it. Definitely adds a special touch to Vista :-)

This is an old, single screen movie theater that now is a venue for live stage performances. It's a fun place to see a show. Check out the upcoming 2011 holiday shows.
