2017 season

51st Season for the Woodminster Summer Musicals:



Welcome to our 51st season performing in historic Woodminster Amphitheater in Joaquin Miller Park!  It's always really complicated to choose a season, and this year was a special challenge because of the difficulty of getting rights to produce some of the shows you've been asking for.  But we've chosen 3 shows that will appeal to the whole family.


Opening the 51st season of Woodminster Summer Musicals is the international smash hit Mamma Mia, based on the songs of ABBA.  Bring the whole family to the ultimate feel-good show, and be prepared to have the time of your life!


In August, the 2017 season continues with South Pacific, the grand Rodgers and Hammerstein adaptation of James Michener’s Tales of the South PacificSouth Pacific has a compelling plot, likable characters, and most of all, some of the most glorious songs in musical theater history.  Join us in August for this beautiful classic love story with a still-timely message about racism.


Woodminster’s 51st season will conclude in September with a magically delightful family favorite, Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Be our guest for this fairy tale come to life, complete with dancing tableware!


We present our musicals outdoors, under the stars, performed by big casts and live professional orchestras.  Come early and enjoy Joaquin Miller Park before the show!


To celebrate our family-friendly season, we've invented a new K75 program that steeply discounts tickets for children and young teens who attend with adults.  But don't forget about our Kids Come Free program, our Oaklanders' Half Price Openings, and our Millenials' Half Price specials!


Woodminster Summer Musicals produced in cooperation with the City of Oakland Parks & Recreation Department.
