The non-profit theatre company hosts up to a dozen events throughout the year ranging from one-evening concerts to multi-week engagement plays and musicals.

The intimate, old-fashioned Theatre is caddy-corner from the Oceanside Civic Center and just a couple blocks east of the Oceanside Pier. Visit the New Vision Theatre Company web site for the current schedule of plays, musicals, and concerts.

Food – There are a number of restaurants along North Coast Highway next to the Theatre and along Pier View Way (one block to the north) and Mission Avenue (one block to the south). If you are looking for a casual, but unique experience, consider eating at Ruby’s Diner, which sits out over the ocean at the end of the Oceanside Pier. (Note that the Pier is nearly 4/10ths of a mile long.)
