Join us for a series of staged readings of live theatrical plays. These readings are the perfect marriage of the beauty of Montalvo with the excitement of live theatre in its purest form.


Unlike a full production, a staged reading strips theatrical convention down to the bare essentials of engaging storytelling: performers and text. Audiences can expect riveting stories read by actors with minimal staging. On a gorgeous summer evening at Montalvo, take your seat, enjoy a gourmet snack box with a glass of wine, and immerse yourselves in an unforgettable analog experience!


  • For outdoor events, lawn chairs will be provided. No outside alcohol or glass bottles of any kind are allowed.
  • No food for sale on site; please pre-purchase a snack box if you would like to enjoy food with your performance. Beverages will be for sale at the concessions stand.
  • Please wear layers as it gets cold in the evenings.

An elegant snack box can be added to enjoy with your performance. The box includes an assortment of cheeses, nuts, fresh fruit, crackers, and a little sweet​ treat. Small bottle of water and serving utensils included; serves 1.
NOTE: Pre-purchase only. Snack boxes will not be available for sale on the night of the event.
