About the Coaster Theatre Playhouse

The Coaster Theatre Playhouse opened in 1972 by Maurie Clark. Through the years, he fostered this institution, transforming it into a cornerstone of the community. In 2001, it became a not-for-profit theater and today produces around five plays and two musicals per year. They also host spring, summer, and winter camps for aspiring young actors and actresses.

The 2019 Season at the Coaster Theatre Playhouse

As it is every year, the theater has a wide range of shows on the docket. These include iconic musical classics like Annie, as well as more recent successes like the Tony award-winning comedic play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Most of the shows are appropriate for young adults and pre-teens. The theater’s website details each show’s “rating,” comparing it to the standard MPAA label and detailing any possible adult themes and content.

  • Living on Love (March 15 to April 13, 2019): A romantic comedy that’s larger than life. It includes some adult themes, though nothing more than you would find on prime-time television, according to the website.
  • Bunbury (May 3 to 26, 2019): A quirky play in which characters from classic literature explore other works to give them happier endings. It’s rated the same as the previous show.
  • And Then There Were None (June 21 to August 31, 2019): Agatha Cristie’s classic mystery takes to the stage! Can you solve the mystery before the end? The play is also rated around PG.
  • Nunsense (June 28 to September 1, 2019): The theater’s summer musical is a farce with exciting numbers and plenty of laughs. Like the previous shows, it’s considered appropriate for pre-teens and teens.
  • The Sipping Savannah Society (September 20 to October 26, 2019): This show is perfect for a girls’ night out! Watch as four charming Southern ladies reflect on their life and bond with each other. It’s rated the same as the previous shows.
  • Annie (November 15 to December 22, 2019): Do we need to go into detail? Everyone knows the story of the little orphan girl who was always excited for tomorrow! This is the perfect show for kids!
