The Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts
Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts offers a wide variety of concerts, plays, and musicals to the entire Silicon Valley. Guests are treated to a small theater experience no matter which area of the facility they are in. Each luxurious seat of the 589-seat main theater features unobstructed sight lines. SecondStage presents events such as theater-in-the-round. Its draw for many productions is the moveable seats and risers. ParkStage amphitheater is a great way to enjoy a concert or play under the stars. Instead of folding chairs, attendees take in shows while sitting on a perfectly manicured lawn.
The center is home to the Peninsula Youth Theatre and TheatreWorks. Peninsula Youth Theatre began in 1992. Its purpose is to give children theatrical skills through learning programs as well as presenting family-friendly productions. TheatreWorks is a non-profit group that has been in operation for over 40 years. They perform musicals, comedies, and dramas ranging from new playwrights’ works to well known classics.
