Owner description: The Coaster Theatre Playhouse has entertained thousands of visitors and locals of Cannon Beach and Oregon's North Coast. Maurie Clark opened the Coaster Theatre in 1972. He supported it with his time, talent and financial resources. Upon his death in 2001, the Coaster Theatre became a not-for-profit theatre. Each year the Coaster Theatre produces 5 plays and 2 musicals as well as inspiring young actors with our Coaster Kidz spring, summer and winter camps. With the support of our wonderful volunteers, sponsors, donors and patrons we will continue to offer quality community theatre in the heart of Cannon Beach.

“A big surprise for a small town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Coaster has great plays. You will be surprised that such a small town can offer so many high quality plays & such a full schedule. Visitors should check out the playbill as soon as they arrive in town to see the latest offerings. You won't be disappointed/

“Fun evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We always love the theater here. They put on a good performance, even though it is a small operation. Highly recommended for an evening in Cannon Beach.

“What a lovely way to spend the evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We seen "A funny thing happened on the way to the forum" while in Cannon Beach. the family enjoyed it, the actors were excellent and the singing was superb. The theatre itself is very comfortable and for $23 per head you can't go wrong. I seen Wicked in the west end London a few weeks ago and I have to say I enjoyed this show more. Way to go gang!!!

“Great!!!! Show!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Talented actors with one of the best renditions of this live play we've seen. Seen the same play in San Francisco, New York and Chicago and this certainly is just as good.

“Great Community Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Spent a nice Sunday evening seeing A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to The Forum. Cast was funny and talented. Seats were comfy and theatre was just the right size. If you're staying in the Cannon Beach area, go see a show!
