I've been wanting to come to the performance of Ramona for 25 years and finally got there. It is an iconic, historic performance of an important period in California history, well told, and everyone should see it at least once. Unless you are local, it's...More

The Ramona Bowl play has been being been a Hemet tradition for probably a hundred years and is good history about the Indians that once lived in the valley, however it is long and can be very hot as you are outdoors.

Seeing this historic old play is a California tradition, but this does not change the fact that it's both expensive and boring. Save your money. See a movie instead!

No. They do not allow outside food and drink. However what you purchase there can be taken into the Amphitheatre itself.
