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.

We came across the theater while meandering around town (Canon Beach) and thought it sounded like a fun thing to do. The theater is an old converted roller rink with a lot of character. We saw Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap" and were very entertained with...More

This is community theater for everyone. There are usually two shows running so you can get a variety of entertainment. There is usually a holiday or musical show during the holidays. If you are on the North Coast, check it out.

We were recently staying near Cannon Beach and attended two shows at the Coaster Theatre. It is a great local venue! We saw Bell, Book, and Candle on a Saturday evening and a concert by Stephen Beus. We enjoyed them both.
