If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a city to build an entertainment complex the size and scope of Act II STAGES. The dedication of the management and staff, and their shared vision of what STAGES brings to Puerto Vallarta, is evident everyday, all year-round, in the quality entertainment Act II provides for both expats and nationals.

ACT II's performance complex, STAGES, conveniently located on Vallarta's South side, houses three entertainment venues: 'The Main Stage,' a 160 seat theater; 'The Red Room,' a 100-seat cabaret; and 'Encore,' a 60-seat piano bar.


Presenting high quality theater productions, internationally-known cabaret acts, concerts, dance and children's theater, and a slew of other performance events, there is literally something for everyone at Act II STAGES! (Programming is bi-lingual, with more English language shows in 'High Season' and more performances in Spanish during the Summer months.)

In short, Act II STAGES brings the highest level of diversion to Puerto Vallarta. Come out and enjoy a complete evening of world-class entertainment in any one of their three venues, along with delicious drinks and snacks, all in one beautiful, convenient location.

Tickets to all shows can be purchased online at actiientertainment.com, at the box office, which opens daily at 10:00 am, or at the 2nd Box Office location, across the street from Garbos on Pulpito Street in the Romantic Zone.

The Act II Entertainment STAGES complex is located at Insurgentes #300 and the corner of Basilio Badillo on the South side of Puerto Vallarta. For more information, call (322) 222-1512, visit their website, or follow Act II on Facebook to stay up to date with information on upcoming productions.
