Before this theater was built in 1849, the only entertainment available in Sacramento was found in gambling houses and saloons. Then, once the theater was built, 49ers starved for culture paid USD5 in gold dust to enjoy dramatic and musical entertainment. In 1850, the Sacramento River flooded the theater. It has since been reconstructed to replicate the original rustic venue and has been designated as an historic landmark. Docent-led tours are free and feature computerized slide shows covering Sacramento's early rough-and-tumble history. During summer weekends, the theater produces period melodramas as well as featuring musical entertainment.
You are enjoying a three-course gourmet dinner aboard the elegant Delta King, afloat in the Sacramento River, when all of a sudden there is a flash, a loud bang and the scent of gunpowder fills the room. As a seemingly-random diner falls to the floor, various characters in the dining room begin acting very suspiciously. You have just entered the Suspects Dinner Theater zone and for the next two hours you will be wondering Whodunit? This is only one of the productions mounted by the Delta King Company. There is also an overnight package offered.

Located in the Wells Fargo Pavilion, this theater was born during World War II, when Sacramento was overrun with soldiers and sailors in need of wholesome entertainment. The theater has two different venues. The Mainstage seats 300 patrons in a platform auditorium. Each seat in the three sections of the auditorium provides a clear view of the stage. Productions tend toward mainstream Broadway favorites. On the same site, Stage 2 is a 90-seat theater, providing only three rows of seats so the audience is thrust into the action on the stage. Call the box office or check online for information (times, ticket prices, etc.) about upcoming shows.
