<p>Known by locals as The Theater on the Bay, the City of Coronado Community Playhouse offers quality entertainment in an idyllic setting. The theater is in the community center along Glorietta Bay. But don't be fooled by its state-of-the-art facility: The Coronado Playhouse is the oldest community theater in San Diego County. It was founded in 1946 and has operated out of several different locations in Coronado, from North Island to the Ferry Landing. However, it spent the majority of these years in a small building near its current location. This building was torn down when the city built the community center, and it rebuilt the playhouse, which opened in 2006.</p> <p>The theater offers intimate, cabaret-style seating with a full bar and refreshments that you can enjoy during the show. Dinner is available on opening nights and certain holidays. &nbsp;</p> <p>Since 1997, the Playhouse has been hosting an annual Shakespeare festival. It produces one Shakespeare play each summer, and these performances are free to the public. For tickets, send a self-addressed and stamped envelope to the address listed above.&nbsp;</p> <p>The playhouse is self-supported through box office revenue, season tickets sales, donations and volunteers.&nbsp;</p>
