Whidbey Island boasts lots of local talent - both native, temporary due to the military families, and many retired folks choosing the bucolic setting for their retirement - and they really provide the Playhouse a great pool of resources from which to draw. The range of plays appeal to a variety of tastes. The playhouse is a remodeled church -... More

this is a small community playhouse but is a fun way to spend an evening. We saw "Run for Your Wife", a comedy and British farce. We laughed through the whole show. It was a lot of fun.

I saw "The Odd Couple" , an all female cast. The theatre it's self was a nice size and loved being able to see the stage well. For the area, I thought they did a nice job. The lead women were very good as well as the two men who played the neighbors. All in all, I would go again,... More

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat......Just a joy to watch! Funny, great singing and a fun night out with girlfriends. We have season tickets and look forward to all the plays.

We enjoyed a rousing performance of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. This was our first time visiting the playhouse. We had no expectations, as community playhouses vary greatly. The theatre is small and intimate. My husband & I laughed as we'd occupied the time of the theatre salesperson on the phone for some time, deciding which seats to choose... More

Can't beat the Whidbey Playhouse for an entertaining evening. There are many, talented locals who contribute by acting, constructing sets, costuming, etc. In almost 30 years of attending plays at this venue, some productions better than others, but never one that was disappointing. Definitely a good bet for an evening's entertainment!

I have always loved Jason Robert Brown's "The Last Five Years", and was excited to hear that it had come to Whidbey Playhouse. I was unsure as to what to expect from this community theatre, but I was pleasantly surprised by by amount of talent shown during this production. I look forward to the next show!

I am a supporter of community theater and a champion of good community theater so it pains me to give my hometown theater a so-so review. Example - One of the best shows ever was 'Nunsense' a few years ago with a cast, live musicians and production values nothing short of astounding. Yet, we could hardly wait for intermission before...

The actors and actresses always do a marvelous job! The variety of shows that the Playhouse chooses keep the family, or friends or couples coming back for more. A treasure for our community.
