Live, In-Person Performances Return!


Live, In-Person Performances Begin In The Merc On Saturday, July 3, 2021 After One Extra-Long Intermission

 The Merc at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater is opening its doors to the public after The Extra-Long Intermission as a result of the global pandemic.  Temecula’s Theater Team has been working behind the scenes to reopen all our performance spaces safely and responsibly with live performances beginning SAT, JUL 3, 2021 at The Merc.   The City of Temecula along with local producers offer an array of performances for the entire family @ THE MERC & COURTYARD (located at 42051 Main Street, Temecula).   Performances will resume on Temecula Theater’s Main Stage in September of 2021 with Mamma Mia presented once again by the Temecula Valley Players (SEP 2 through 19, 2021).  TCSD President and Council Member Zak Schwank stated, “The City of Temecula thanks you for your patience and patronage as we welcome you, our Temecula Theater Family, back along with the talented performers, long-standing partners, and producers.  On With The Shows!”
