In 1975 that The American Association of University Women (AAUW)
felt that it was time that Lincoln City community form a local
theatre group. It took several meetings and some serious
discussions for the name Theatre West to be agreed upon. The first
production was a one-act play presented at The Surftides
In 1979 the group became officially incorporated as a non-profit
community theatre. In the beginning, Theatre West presented plays
wherever they could find a friendly stage. Local restaurants,
schools and other facilities were gracious enough to allow the
Theatre to "tread the boards" in their establishments.
In 1986, Theatre West decided that they needed a place so they
rented auditorium space from Panache Antiques. It was there in 1989
that former Broadway actor, Jack Coyne and his late partner, Mark
LaRocque, owners of the antique store, donated the property to
Theatre West and Jack became its permanent Artistic Director.
The theatre was the first community theatre to obtain permission
for the smash hits "Lend Me a Tenor" and "I Hate Hamlet." Their
highest honor remains being allowed to present an excerpted version
of William Luce's, Tony winning play, "Bell of Amherst," directed
by the author.
From new productions to revivals of beloved favorites, the stage
is filled with great entertainment throughout the year.
