About Transcendence

When the sun sets, the stars alight, and the show begins,

you’ll see why we call it the

Best Night Ever.  

Transcendence Theatre Company is California Wine Country’s premiere live entertainment experience, thirteen years and counting. With original outdoor musical revues every summer, an indoor holiday show every winter, and more, our mission is to create extraordinary evenings featuring the best talents from Broadway and beyond.

Every season brings new shows. Every show hits new heights. Every person who joins us feels that singular sensation only possible from when music and movement lift us up beyond the everyday.  


To experience Transcendence is to experience the extraordinary.

Wine Country’s Premiere Entertainment Experience

Our Mission

Transcendence Theatre Company’s mission is to create extraordinary experiences that inspire all to live life to the fullest.

We champion the unique, life-affirming power of live musical performance to help individuals and the community make the most of every moment and change their lives for the better.

“Transcendence” is the name of our theatre company because that is the feeling we hope you have when you see one of our shows. We define it as excelling, surpassing, or going beyond the usual limits. It’s a feeling that lies beyond the limits of ordinary experience. It is to rise above and go beyond.
