Pearson Park Theatre

The crown jewel of Anaheim’s original public park is undoubtedly the Mediterranean inspired amphitheater on the eastern side of the park. The forecourt features a fountain appointed with colorful Spanish tile. After passing through the arches at the entrance, the 1,000+ seating bowl gently slopes down toward the stage, and is flanked on either side by octagonal, Spanish towers that hide backstage equipment. All of the theatre’s facilities are ornamented in similarly inspired Spanish revival styles. To top it off is a backdrop of rows upon rows of palm trees. (2017)
