2021 Spring/Summer Frequently Asked Questions

How will seating work for Outside SCR at The Mission San Juan Capistrano?
Seating at Mission San Juan Capistrano will be general admission within specific zones—meaning when you arrive, you choose where you would like to sit within the zone you purchased. There are two price tiers—Premium and Regular. The Premium Price Seating Zones feature pre-set chairs provided by the theatre in the best locations for sightlines and sound. In the Regular Price Seating Zones, you supply your own low-back lawn chair or picnic blanket. Regular Seating Zones are located directly in front of the stage, and in the back half of the quad. The area directly in front of the stage features socially distanced pods which can accommodate up to 4 people each. Quad D is a Family Fun Zone, where families can move about during the performance.

Quick Seating Overview
  • Quads A and B Premium seating sections—chairs are provided. 
  • Quads A and B Front of Stage Pods—you bring your own blanket or low-backed chair to sit on. Chairs should sit low to the ground so that you are not blocking the audience behind you.
  • Quads C and D—you bring your own blanket or low-backed chair to sit on.

I don’t see my regular subscription series in the offerings; has it been discontinued?
No, but it is on hiatus for one season due to the shortened season. We encourage you to create your own season based on what you would like to experience. If you previously subscribed to the Segerstrom Stage or Julianne Argyros Stage, we recommend A Shot Rang Out, the Pacific Playwrights Festival, American Mariachi and You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. If you have children or grandchildren ages 4-10, we encourage you to also include Red Riding Hood in your season, as well. If you previously subscribed to the Theatre for Young Audiences Family Series, we recommend Red Riding Hood and You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

What if a play is cancelled?
If we cannot gather safely, these plays will be delayed but will not be cancelled. If this happens, you will be the first to know. We will communicate at that time about your options. Although the dates my change, we are committed to bringing you this exciting lineup—as soon as it is safe to do so!

Not quite ready to return?
If you choose to skip the 2021 Spring/Season season, your regular subscription seats are protected for the 2021-22 season. You will have the opportunity to renew your subscription and keep your seats when the 2021-22 season goes on sale.
