About Us

The Dolphin Playhouse was organized in 1979. Our Mission : Producing Quality Theatre in an intimate setting. In 2011 we found our permanent home in the Empire District of Coos Bay. We are actively involved in the Community Coalition of Empire and partner with several community organizations.

While the primary use of the Dolphin Playhouse is producing live theatre, the Dolphin Playhouse is available for community meetings, musical events, and privater parties. The building is handicapped accessible and offers a kitchen and flexible seating arrangements. The Dolphin Playhouse is a cultural and community center for the Empire community, as well as the greater Bay Area. For more information about the use of the facility, please contact Alice Carlson 541-808-2611.
