Thank you again for supporting Coronado Playhouse!

Coronado Playhouse is sending a love letter to our patrons in the form of a very special cabaret: A Diamond Cabaret: Celebrating 75 Years.

The nearly two dozen songs include solos, duets and group numbers sung by 24 performers, including many familliar  faces. This diverse group will help the Playhouse express our gratitude to our patrons for their support and will highlight popular productions from our 76-year history.

Join us as we revisit our past and musically explore what made Coronado Playhouse one of the longest running arts organizations in San Diego County. Existing audiences know that CPH cabarets are favorites among our patrons. This feel-good show will sell out during this one weekend run.
