The state-of-the-art theatre seats 250 in air-conditioned comfort.As the only professional producing theatre in the region and one of the oldest summer stock companies in the country, the Players has staged more than 300 different plays over the years. Distinctive from the programming of many other summer theatres, the Players has presented a variety of world and regional premieres and works by contemporary playwrights as well as the classics.Seven Main Stage productions are produced each season and two Second Company shows for children. During the "off" season, (October - May), The Metropolitan Opera and London's National Theatre is broadcast onto the "big screen" at the Players.Residents of New Hampshire as well as daytrippers from the greater New England aread enjoy coming to our charming, rural setting to experience excellent theatre, as well as high definition broadcast offerings.
