Coronado Playhouse cares about the well-being of its staff, cast and crew and will be following all guidelines and procedures to ensure their safety. We have deliberately chosen this show for the small cast, to ensure a safe environment both on and backstage. All necessary precautions will be taken including wearing face coverings, frequent sanitation, temperature checks and, if possible, regular testing. 

Initial rehearsals may be conducted on Zoom and possibly outdoors, with safety protocols in place.

There is also consideration being given to performing this show outdoors, next to the Playhouse, depending on the status of the vaccine distribution, level of immunity and any State/County/City restrictions still in place at that time.

Show synopsis: 

Marianne and Roland meet at a party. They hit it off…or perhaps they don’t. They go for a drink…or perhaps they don’t. They go home together…or perhaps they go their separate ways. Maybe she breaks his heart. Maybe he breaks hers. 

Suppose that life exists in a multiverse…a set of parallel existences that contain infinitely different outcomes. The possibilities in our lives are, quite literally, endless. Every possible event that could happen, does happen. And if two lovers meet…are drawn together in every version of existence…every possible happy ending and heartbreak that could befall them, will.

Nick Payne’s Constellations takes a chance encounter between two drifting souls and opens a door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship. Constellations is a spellbinding exploration at how the tiniest change in the details of our lives can dramatically alter the lives we live.
