The City of Temecula invites residents and visitors to join our growing Theater Family and experience the entire season from start to finish. Welcome to Temecula Presents’ 2022 – 2023 Season at the Multi-Award-Winning Old Town Temecula Community Theater. It is our pleasure to present an array of programming ─ from family-friendly theater productions and eclectic performance series to First Friday visual art exhibitions. As you review the Seasons offerings, we hope your calendar will fill up with favorite shows for you, your family, and friends.
Temecula Presents is pleased to announce our 18th Season overflowing with our favorite, top-notch performers from the popular Aloha, Big Band, Classical Music, Dance, and Legends Series. We have also added a few surprises this year! We are thrilled to welcome back the unique blend of Mariachi and modern music and the angelic harmonies of Ellas (JAN 14, 2023).
Temecula’s Mayor Matt Rahn states, “Now is the perfect time to restate our mission to shine as one of Temecula Valley’s leading performing arts destinations. This Season, Temecula’s Theater continues to bring dance, music, and remarkable theater performances to our stages curated from local, national, and international artists. By working with dance companies, musicians, and thespians, we creatively present and collaboratively produce work with renowned artists from Southern California and beyond. The range and accessibility of Temecula Theater’s programming attracts and reflects the diverse communities around Temecula.”
