Act II Entertainment STAGES Insurgentes #300 @ Basilio Badillo South Side, Puerto Vallarta Tel: (322) 222-1512 Email: info(at)actiientertainment.com. Website: actiientertainment.com Facebook

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 STAGES box office, which opens on show days at 4:00 pm; or at the new box office, across the street from Garbo Bar at Pulpito #141-A, from 11 am till 5 pm Monday-Saturday (high season).

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.
