Lonely Planet review
TV’s Grandpa Walton founded this beloved theater as a refuge for blacklisted actors like himself during the McCarthy years. The woodsy setting is a perfect backdrop for such classic crowd-pleasers as Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Bram Stoker’s Dracula .
The season runs from June to early October. To get there, head north on Pacific Coast Hwy, turn inland on Topanga Canyon Blvd and proceed for 6 miles; the theater will be on your left.
