    South Coast Repertory to perform final outdoor series at San Juan Capistrano Mission
    • July 5, 2024

    It’s the last chance to catch the Outside South Coast Repertory play series this summer at the San Juan Capistrano Mission.

    Going on four seasons, this is the final year for the outdoor theater program at the Mission, said SCR spokesperson Brian Robin.

    Since 2021, the Mission has collaborated with SCR, the theater company behind the Emmes/Benson Theatre Center in Costa Mesa, when the COVID-19 pandemic prevented live indoor performances, said Robin.

    “It was our way of returning to live performances, and we approached the Mission about partnering with us,” Robin said. “We have enjoyed our time at the Mission and are grateful for our collaboration with them.”

    Representatives from the Mission did not respond to requests for comment.

    SCR is still exploring options for future outdoor productions, Robin said.

    The final show hosted at the Mission, located at 26801 Ortega Highway, through the Outside South Coast Repertory series is “The Old Man and The Old Moon.”

    The play, directed by SCR’s Associate Artistic Director Kim Martin-Cotten, follows a moon-keeper who wakes to find his wife has gone missing, according to the Mission’s website. His search leads him through bizarre encounters and into the belly of a fish, all in pursuit of his wife.

    This show will run from July 20 through Aug. 11, starting at 7:30 p.m. each night. An American Sign Language version of the show will be performed on Aug. 4 at 7:30 p.m.

    Tickets can be purchased on South Coast Repertory’s website.
