About us Coastal Repertory Theatre (formerly This Side of the Hill Players) was founded in 1986 to bring quality theatrical entertainment to the Coastside. Occupying our current theatre in the Mel Mello Center for the Performing Arts since 1993, Coastal Rep has delighted audiences with a wide variety of theatrical experiences from comedies and dramas to musicals, melodramas, farces and talent shows. Located at the end of Main Street, we are just minutes from downtown Half Moon Bay, a popular entertainment community for visitors. We encourage our neighbors from "over the hill" to spend a weekend in one of Half Moon Bay's fine hotels or Bed and Breakfast Inns and "take in a show". We look forward to seeing you here. Our name change The membership of This Side of the Hill Players voted in 2001 to change the name of the theatre company to the Coastal Repertory Theatre. The name change became effective in early 2002. The Coastal Repertory Theatre is committed to providing the same high quality theatrical experiences you have been used to receiving.
