Past Special Exhibits
“Ramona” History, Drama, and Love in the San Jacinto Valley
Western Science Center in cooperation with the Ramona Bowl Amphitheatre is pleased to announce a special limited engagement exhibit celebrating the legacy of the Ramona Pageant, the official outdoor play of California, and the longest continuously running outdoor theatrical production in the United States
The play “Ramona”, established in 1923, is a story of love, tragedy, and the clash of cultures in California’s historic past. The exhibit features costumes, props, artifacts and programs from the historic pageant.
The “Ramona” exhibition will celebrate the history of this iconic California play, and explore the social, political, and cultural context that inspired the novel written by Helen Hunt Jackson, published in 1884.
Western Science Center expresses our sincere gratitude to the Ramona Bowl Amphitheatre for their generosity in coordinating the artifacts to create this very special exhibit depicting the history of the San Jacinto Valley, while documenting California’s official outdoor play.
