‘Outside SCR’ Theatre Productions at Mission San Juan Capistrano


South Coast Repertory is excited to partner with Mission San Juan Capistrano to provide you with the opportunity to gather safely outdoors and experience two family-friendly, world-class theatre productions under the stars.

American Mariachi

July 15, 17, 23, 25, 29, 31

Back by popular demand! In this big-hearted comedy with live music, Lucha spends her days caring for her mother and yearning for more. But it’s the 1970s and women can’t be mariachis…or can they? Defying tradition, Lucha and her spunky cousin hunt for bandmates and take up instruments. A loving gesture for a mother becomes much more as the young women dream big and embrace the transcendent power of music. Recommended for ages 12+.

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown

July 16, 18, 22, 24, 30, Aug. 1

Good grief! The whole “Peanuts” gang is here—Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, and of course, that wishy-washy blockhead, Charlie Brown. He’s never pitched a winning baseball game and he can’t muster the courage to talk to the Little-Red Haired Girl. But all his best qualities—and those of his clever friends—get celebrated in this delightful musical filled with such gleeful tunes as “My Blanket and Me,” “Suppertime” and “Happiness.” Recommended for ages 4+.
