PLEASE NOTE: Our theater shows are canceled for the 2020 season. We look forward to welcoming you to the Yosemite Theater in 2021!

Our theater shows offer a fun, relaxing way for visitors of all ages to enjoy an evening in Yosemite Valley — and you just might learn something, too. At the Yosemite Theater, talented rangers, historians and storytellers bring the past to life on stage, share true tales and inspiring insights, and invite you to see the park through a new lens. And as with all Conservancy programs, by stopping in for a show you’ll help support important work in the park.

We can’t wait to welcome you to the theater when our shows start back up in 2021, and we’ll post the performance schedule here when it’s available. While the theater is closed, we hope you’ll connect with us in Yosemite or from home in other ways this year! Check out upcoming Outdoor Adventures, schedule a Custom Adventure, try one of our at-home art projects, get inspired to “read your park,” browse our online bookstore, and learn about birds, plants, lichen and more in videos from our naturalist guides.
