The Northern Stage Theatre Company is located at the Briggs Opera House. They do all sorts of plays from musicals to mysteries. The theatre is on the second floor which can be accessed by an elevator if the stairs are too much of a climb for you. A quaint place to see great professional theatre. All the seats are good!

We did not expect to find any good theater performances in the remote part of Vermont we recently visited, because there were only small villages in the nearby driving area; however, we were told at our B&B in Chester, Vermont, of Northern Stage performances in the small village of White River Junction, about one-half hour away by car.

Every production we have seen at the Briggs Opera House has been worth the trip to Vermont. You have the mountains, the leaf season and the Opera House.

We saw Annie and had seats on the side of the stage. The actors were absolutely amazing!! The sound is excellent in this small theater and the stage props were incredibly well done...absolutely professional! I'd recommend getting center section seats if possible as the view from the side is truly from the side! But its still worth it!

Went to see Boeing Boeing. A great show and an excellent cast. First time at the Briggs/Northern Stage- it's small (not sure how many seats) but every seat is close to the stage. A great night out.
