Spring is in the air and love is blooming on stage at Coronado Playhouse as Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s beloved musical comedy adds additional performances due to popular demand! Company features many of Sondheim’s most beloved songs in an insightful and hilarious exploration of love, longing, and ‘being alive.’

The hit production is directed by Blake McCarty, a local director and designer who is also the founder of Blindspot Collective. His award-winning projection designs have been seen at La Jolla Playhouse, Cygnet, San Diego Rep, and Moonlight Amphitheatre and Company marks his directorial debut at Coronado Playhouse. “It’s joyful to see how these complex characters and unforgettable songs resonate with audiences today,” noted McCarty. “This trailblazing musical still has something to say about the rupture, repair, and self-reflection required for meaningful relationships.”

The knockout cast includes fresh faces like Nathan Wetter and Dacara Seward, as well as acclaimed artists like Richard Morrison, the resident Music Director at San Diego Musical Theatre, and Desha Crownover, who served as the Artistic Director of San Diego Junior Theatre for 25 years. The chance for emerging talents to share the stage with industry professionals is an opportunity that only a community theater like Coronado Playhouse can provide. “Although it’s a bit surreal to share the stage with a former student,” said Crownover, “it’s an experience I will cherish and never forget.”
