The Whidbey Playhouse
Get the best out of the small community theatre experience at the Whidbey Playhouse. Active for more than 45 years, this group has dedicated itself to nourishing the cultural arts in the area. It has since put on hundreds of products since its beginnings in the 1960s, from musicals and melodramas to variety shows and youth productions. Now the Playhouse puts on five shows during the season as well as running a youth theater program. This includes summer productions and workshops. Come support the local arts while being entertained by seeing one of their fabulous productions.
Naval History Center
Come learn more about military history while supporting the troops when you visit the Naval History Center. Dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Navy, the museum contains 11 rooms with displays for conflicts ranging from World War II to the Iraq War. Come see unique artifacts, including a postcard sent from the sunken U.S.S. Utah as well as models of all of the aircraft that have been flown out of NAS Whidbey Island since its beginnings in 1942. Feel like you are in the cockpit as you fly in their flight simulator, or honor those long gone at the Missing Man Table.
