When planning a trip to Cannon Beach, I check both the weather forecast and what's playing at the Coaster Theatre since nightlife is almost nonexistent except for this live theater. This is their 40th Anniversary Year. Prior to this playhouse the site was a Coaster Roller Rink. Each of the many plays I've seen here was well done. Every season offers a good variety of classic and newer plays or musicals. This time I wanted to see Arsenic and Old Lace. Last time I enjoyed Butterflies are Free. Stage sets and acting are first-rate.
Plays are performed Wednesday through Sunday evenings. If you call the box office (503-436-1242 that opens at 1 pm) they'll hold seats for you and you'll pay when you arrive. The theatre is small enough that most any seat affords good sight and sound. During intermission you can buy homemade cookies for $1. This non-profit community theatre is a wonderful way to spend an artsy evening after a day at the beach.
