Welcome to our 75th Anniversary season!

Coronado Playhouse proudly announces the beginning of our 2021 Season, which will be our 75th anniversary! The Playhouse is preparing shows that will adhere to standards necessitated by COVID-19, while being comfortable for patrons and performers alike. The shows at the beginning of the year are smaller in scale but will have a big impact in terms of entertainment and significance.

Coronado Playhouse is announcing three full productions and one reading event to start the 2021 season. CPH welcomes back two returning directors and welcomes two debuting directors to their stage for the beginning of our 2021 Season.

The box office is personally contacting existing subscribers and donors regarding out new season. Season tickets will be available later this fall and will be made available on our website. We are grateful to our patrons for understanding the difficulties in pulling together a new season in our current COVID situation.

We are excited to bring you much needed entertainment and some special 75th anniversary programming in 2021.
