Description

The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company builds on and enhances the unique assets of its Vermont village campus to produce a diverse, entertaining, and challenging season of live professional theatre and high impact events; enrich the theatergoing experience with education and outreach programs for all ages; and make significant contributions to the American theatre through training programs, play development, and retreats.

Vermont?s oldest professional theatre is a living testament to a community?s belief in the arts.

In 1935, while the Great Depression was raging, Weston-born architect Raymond Austin was putting the finishing touches on a playhouse that one Boston Globe critic would dub ?the most beautiful theatre in New England.? A former church renovated for the town?s dramatic club, the Weston Playhouse quickly attracted the attention of director Harlan Grant, who produced the theatre?s first summer stock season in 1937, featuring a young actor named Lloyd Bridges.

The Weston Playhouse is now an award-winning regional theatre nationally known for its multi-stage summer festival and its year-round Education and New Works Programs.

The theatre’s summer season offers a schedule of popular musicals, classic plays, family-friendly productions and new works on two stages. Come early for dinner, stay late for cabaret!
