It just keeps getting better! The Lewis Family Playhouse has been a destination for local, quality entertainment for the past 11 years. This special place is a point of pride of Rancho Cucamonga and local families looking to experience and honor the arts. Each year we get better at booking the big name acts you want to see, and this year we are proud to announce our 2017-2018 season - one of our best yet.

From exciting musical artists to sidesplitting comedians to thought-provoking theatre to family friendly entertainment, the Lewis Family Playhouse's 12th season is sure to thrill audiences all year long. The season opens with all-around entertainer and highly decorated performer, Vanessa Williams. The season line-up continues with top performers, Billy Ray Cyrus , Michael McDonald, Bill Engvall, Los Lobos, Clint Black, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Jesse Cook. Scheduled performances also include acts that are back by popular demand. Come and experience Inland Pacific Ballet's The Nutcracker, Capitol Steps, Choo Choo Soul with Genevieve!, and It's Magic!

As always, the Playhouse's resident theatre companies are prepared to dazzle both first-time theatregoers and lifelong patrons of the arts with captivating and remarkable theatrical works. MainStreet Theatre Company, the resident professional Equity company at the Lewis Family Playhouse, is proud to present Leo Lionni's Frederick for families ages 4 and up, Roald Dahl's The Witches for families ages 6 and up, and Oh Freedom! The Story of the Underground Railroad for families ages 10 and up. Rancho Cucamonga Community Theatre is proud to return with their holiday delight, Miracle on 34th Street. You will also have the chance to join fellow ABBA fans for the company's popular screening of the Mamma Mia! movie. Broadway at the Gardens spices it up this year with In The Heights, an urban musical with a poignant storyline and a Latin touch.

Ticket sales for the full season went on sale July 6th and season brochures hit mailboxes earlier that week. Playhouse staff recommends purchasing tickets sooner rather than later, as sell-outs are expected. The Playhouse sold out 10 performances during the 2016-2017 season, and 3 of the 10 sold out in the first week of ticket sales. Once again, we are delighted to present a diverse and exciting season of arts and entertainment for the City of Rancho Cucamonga and community. Thank you for keeping the Lewis Family Playhouse one of the hottest places in the Inland Empire for quality entertainment.
