Happy New Year from the Coaster Theatre Playhouse! We hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday season. 2015 was another terrific year at the Coaster Theatre filled with drama, mystery, love, comedy, man-eating plants, magic and moat swimming princesses. As we reflect on the past year and look to the New Year, we are grateful for the love and support we receive from the North Coast community and our supporters near and far. We are honored that so many of you support this wonderful little theatre in Cannon Beach.
This time of year is a quiet and yet busy time of year at the theatre. While we have no shows at the theatre until January 29th, we are busy behind the scenes with projects to ready us for the New Year and season. Many people use this time of year to refresh and renew for the year ahead, we are also preparing for our new season by organizing, clearing out and maintaining props, costumes and the building. It is also a time for those projects that we have to put off due to our busy rehearsal/production schedule during the season. One of those projects that we will be sharing with you in the New Year is the digital conversion of our vast photo archive. As you can guess, we have a ton of photos lying around this building and are excited to be in the process of having 375 of these older (pre-digital era) photos digitized so that we can share them with you in the coming year and beyond.
