We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Woodminster to watch Beauty and the Beast. We reserved one of the picnic tables surrounding the upper edge of the amphitheater to enjoy a rather civilized picnic before the show. While the weather is usually cool, our visit...More

Saw "The Producers." I previously saw it on Broadway, and my companion was familiar with the movie. We both enjoyed it immensely! Outrageous and hilarious. The theater itself is terrific for a summer evening - in Joaquin Miller Park amid tall trees. There is plenty...More

We have gone to Woodminster Amphitheater. Its in Joaquin Miller Park. Its an outdoor theater with reasonable ticket prices. There is parking by the theater. Since its in a park, we have enjoyed doing a picnic before the performance.
