f you attend, be advised that this venue is an outdoor amphitheater with very limited parking, requiring long walks up steep terrain to get to the venue itself. Bring a seat cushion, a blanket and a flashlight to find your way back to your car afterwards. The seats are hard plastic, narrow and the rows are steeply pitched. I felt like I was going to fall forward the whole time. People with back or leg problems should forgo this one. I don't think I'll attend another event at this venue.

Thoroughly enjoyed "Catch Me If You Can." The singing and the dancing were terrific. And the story (which is true) is really a lot of fun. While we didn't find it to be an emotional experience like "Les Miserables," we still enjoyed it tremendously.

Description

Comfortable shoes and clothes are recommended. Since Oakland summer evenings are sometimes chilly, we suggest bringing jackets.

There are bathrooms and snack bars inside the amphitheater. Coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks, candy, popcorn and cookies are available for purchase.

Picnic tables are available throughout the park on a first-come, first-served basis. There are also some picnic tables within the amphitheater that can be reserved through Producers Associates for a nominal charge of $10. For information about reserving picnic tables, call 510-531-9597 or email harriet@woodminster.com.

You’ll probably want to arrive no later than 6:00pm to have time for a leisurely picnic before the show starts promptly at 8:00pm
