I was surprised at how small and cozy this theatre is. It feels as if you are in a big living room with a stage. You get seated in tables and can drink wine, coffee and eat popcorn. It is truly kid friendly and they are encouraged to sit in front of the stage to get a better view. Will... More

I'm continually amazed at the quality of acting in San Diego. This is truly a community theater with tables and chairs that you might end up sharing. The sharing part gives you an opportunity to meet great people. The performances are high-level quality. So, this is a place to get good entertainment at very reasonable prices.

The Coronado Playhouse is a great community theater with first rate productions. We recently saw Suds at the Playhouse and really enjoyed the performance. The actors were fantastic, the setting is magical on the bay looking at San Diego, seating comfortable, and it is fun to support local actors. I highly recommend attending a plan at the Coronado Playhouse when... More

Suds is a musical with a book that strings together dozens of 60's songs into non-stop singing and dancing by 5 women and 1 man. It was very well done, especially for a small theater like this. Seats are at cabaret tables, and there is a bar with beers, mixed drinks, and snacks.

This is a cute little theatre in an easy to get to location. Parking was also easy. The show, Carnival, was well-staged and performed. This was a show I had seen many years ago, and I love the score. We were very pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the singers' voices and the obvious talents displayed by many of... More

Funny and enjoying. I recommend everyone to watch "The Pageant" play and the upcoming plays. The host was funny, the actors were super.

Coronado Playhouse always puts on interesting shows. 2013 is the year of the musical - I just saw "Pageant" then "Carnival" and I can't wait for "Suds"!

This little place is fun, intimate, and a great place to meet other people sitting at your table. It is set up like a Cabaret and the actors get involved with the audience.

Seats were very comfortable and this is the only theatre I've been to with real butter, there are only 2-3 movies that play but they're generally the most current movies and generally have something for all members of a family.

It is what you expect, a small playhouse. Beverages are expensive. The show was not that great, but it could have just been our luck.
