It Begins with a Mermaid & a Scrooge
If you haven't been to the Rancho Mirage Amphitheater for a Desert Theatricals' Broadway-style production, make this 2021/2022 season a priority - you won't be disappointed!

Since a brief pause due to the pandemic, the Rancho Mirage Amphitheater will reopen with two FREE Desert Theatricals events presented by the City of Rancho Mirage and the Rancho Mirage Library & Observatory:
November 20 & 21, 2021

Watch this classic Disney movie come to life with Mermaid princess Ariel's fascination with the world and lives of people on dry land and longing to someday join them, even though her father, King Triton, forbids contact with humans. 
December 11 & 12, 2021

This perfect-for-the-holidays, Charles Dickens classic tells the story of the redemption of a human soul. An ever-powerful story of Scrooge, a lonely miser, who finds a second chance to become a loving, generous human being.
Tickets are required for Free events and will be available on October 4.
Food and beverage will be available for purchase.

It's Overseeding Time Again!

All parks will remain open during overseeding except for the Rancho Mirage Dog Park, which will be closed from October 4 through mid-November, 2021 for annual maintenance. The City will send out an email notification when the dog park is reopened.
