Due to continued COVID concerns, and with the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers and patrons in mind, all patrons must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or must produce a negative PCR test result, taken with 72 hours of the performance, in order to attend a show. This must be shown to the box office in order to pick up your tickets. A photo or screenshot of your vaccination card or test result will suffice. There will be no exceptions.  Please be prepared by informing all of the guests in your party prior to coming to the theatre.

Furthermore, until further notice, all patrons must wear a mask (covering mouth and nose) to enter the theatre and may only remove their masks while eating or drinking. Masks will be available for any patron who does not bring their own.

We are doing our part. All CPH staff, volunteers, cast, crew and musicians are fully vaccinated. All staff, ushers and crew will wear masks.

We hope you understand that it is vital that we do our best to prevent any transmission of COVID-19. After 18 long months, we are so excited to finally be able to welcome back our audiences for live performances. It would be devastating if we would have to shut down again.

Thank you so much for your support of, and participation in our efforts to keep Coronado Playhouse a safe space for all.

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, Big Fish tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest…and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him—most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.

The story shifts between two timelines. In the present-day real world, sixty-year-old Edward Bloom faces his mortality while his son prepares to become a father himself. In the storybook past, Edward ages from a teenager, encountering a Witch, a Giant, a Mermaid, and the love of his life, Sandra. The stories meet as Will discovers the secret his father never revealed.

Overflowing with heart and humor, Big Fish is an extraordinary musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre—for an experience that’s richer, funnier and bigger than life itself.
