EP's 60th Celebration


  • evergreen Playhouse (map)

Join us for a weekend of celebrating 60 years of live theater in Centralia, Washington!

Evergreen Playhouse was established in 1959 by a group of area citizens with a strong commitment to the theatre arts and has operated continuously since that time, presenting a variety of live theatre experiences to the community and providing many opportunities for people to share their talents on stage and off. Five dollar bonds were sold to finance our first play, Sabrina Fair, and were redeemed, as promised, following the production.

At first, physical space to perform plays was donated to Evergreen Playhouse. The ballroom of the Lewis and Clark Hotel was the first “theatre” setting. Other locations were borrowed or rented until 1972, when the Playhouse moved into the space at 226 West Center Street, our present location.

To kick off our 60th Season, the Evergreen Playhouse is proud to present a weekend of celebrating 60 years of live theater!
