It's a Cabaret old Chum

If you enjoy community theater you will love this informal cabaret style theater where you can enjoy a glasses of wine and popcorn and meet new friends at a table for four.

We were here as first timers enjoying Throughly modern Millie. The positives, location was a quick walk from the Coronado Beach Resort. We enjoyed the show and the prices were great for a night out but the tables are placed too close together. We were seated at table 10 and my view was blocked by a large woman seated in... More

We experienced "Boeing, Boeing", a farcical play with lots of silly stuff. I found it "over acted", too over the top. The building was also over cooled so we were shivering in long pants and jackets. The table top seating is fun. There was plenty of snacks, candy and beverages available. The price was right at $17pp.

This review is only based on one play: mistletoe&mayhem play! Here is the deal: the play was very good for community theater; and for $15 a ticket you cant go wrong! The value made it a 5. Broadway it is definitely not, but again it was still done very well; and made for a fun (and funny!) night :) Its... More

I loved the venue. The Coronado Playhouse is situated right by the water in Coronado Island. It is almost a park-like setting. There are tables and chairs where you can sit on while enjoying the view of the water only a few feet away. The play we watched was good (Dearly Beloved) but quite slow, although the cast was awesome... More

Coronado Playhouse not only mounts very good productions, but it has the best venue in San Diego. Due to its beauty and amenities it is also used for many wedding receptions. It is a relatively new building within walking distance of the Hotel Del Coronado. It not only has beautiful views of the bay and San Diego, but it's just... More

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.
