An OCGL Exclusive

The Camino Real Playhouse, nestled in historic San Juan Capistrano, boasts a rich history dating back to the early 1900s. Situated in the heart of old town San Juan Capistrano, near the oldest inhabited neighborhood in California, Los Rios Street.

Our enduring passion for theaters was sparked here, and OC Ghosts & Legends is the first group to probe into this beloved community institution. The Playhouse exceeded all expectations, emerging as one of our most EVP (electronic voice phenomena) active locations.

Beginning our investigations in early 2015, we found ourselves drawn back time and again. Following multiple investigations and gathering substantial evidence, we officially recognized the Camino Real Playhouse as a “haunted landmark,” as depicted in the accompanying acknowledgment.

We did the San Juan Capistrano tour. What a chilling and great tour! Being able to get so close up and walk on to the properties in the tour made it great as well! We absolutely loved it! The history , stories and tips our tour guides Heather and John shared during the tour have me looking at what tour to do next with OC Ghosts and Legends and making sure we have them as our tour guides again. THANK YOU HEATHER AND JOHN!

We just did a lockdown at Camino Del Rio Playhouse. The place was quite the hot bed of activity. For anyone who is going on an investigation for the first time, I would highly recommend this location. We had a mix of shadow figures, haunted objects, and unexplained phenomenon. The staff, Heather, Roger, Diane and crew, were very professional and helped facilitate the investigation by throwing out ideas on how to investigate and provided a variety of equipment to play with. I can't give enough stars to these guys! This is my second event, first being Bracken Fern Manor, can't wait for our next one.
