My husband and I are kids at heart and we love Shrek the animated film. A date night under the stars at Moonlight Amphitheatre in Vista, watching “Shrek: The Musical”, was a great idea. The musical aligns with the film, it’s a tale of a grumpy ogre named Shrek who is on a journey alongside a humorous donkey in order to save Princess Fiona from a tower so she can marry Lord Farquaad, but along their travels, Shrek and Fiona fall in love. The musical is truly captivating with vivid sets, extravagant costumes and talented vocals.

Not only did we enjoy the show, we really adored the unique outdoor venue. It is definitely a great place to go on a date or a family outing. In the summertime, you can setup a picnic dinner beforehand while watching a beautiful sunset. No need to pack the chairs, the venue provides them, which is free as part of lawn seating tickets. If you decide not to take along a picnic dinner, they have the Artisan Cafe that looked delicious and reasonably priced. I hope you spend one of the remaining beautiful summer nights at the theatre.
