Yosemite Theater

Shelton Johnson as a Buffalo Soldier at Yosemite Valley Theater

Yosemite Theater

Yosemite comes alive in theater! After a long day exploring the park, relax and enjoy an evening at the Yosemite Valley Theater with creative performances that reveal Yosemite’s history and little-known stories. Watch history leap to life as Lee Stetson portrays John Muir, or as ranger Shelton Johnson gives you a new perspective on Yosemite through the eyes of a Buffalo Soldier. Join spirited Florence Hutchings as she recounts her brief but exciting life as a young girl growing up in Yosemite. Re-live rescue missions with rangers, explore the park's vertical wilderness with an expert rock-climber, and learn about the cast of characters who have helped shape this national treasure.  

The Yosemite Theater is closed for the season, and will reopen in spring 2019.
