The outdoor Garden Theatre, originally built by Lilian Fontaine (mother of Oscar-winning actresses Joan Fontaine and Olivia deHaviland), is home to our famous summer theatre and musical programs. It is also available for private and corporate events. The theatre is nestled against the hills surounded by 100-year old trees and sculptures placed by Senator Phelan. The Garden Theatre can accommodate groups as small as 100 and up to 1100.
