We are back and happy to announce our 2013 Season
Central Vermont's Only Semi-Professional Theater
What does semi-professional mean? It means the best local actors and theater
technicians that central Vermont can provide.
Dedicated to producing the highest quality non-musical shows possible, the Waterbury
Festival Playhouse brings you the shows you won't see anywhere else. Also, we are so
confident of the quality of our productions we guarantee them. If you don't feel
you've seen a high-quality production, we'll give you your money back.
Our 2013 season is the 7th season for the Players, and we bring you a nice mix
of comedy and drama.
||We opened our doors with this show in 2006. We're back, and it's back.
This is one of the most popular farces in Modern Theater. It's all about Doors and Sardines.
The School for Lies
||Based on Molier's "The Misanthrope" this 350 year old farce has a decidedly modern
feel thanks to this David Ives adaptation.
||This is a drama, and if you like dramas you will not be disappointed.
Based on the classic theme of the dysfunctional family, this show will
reach into your guts and twist. (Not recommended for young audiences)
Rumors by Neil Simon
||Neil Simon brings us this classic comedy, with its great characters
and wonderful theme. Find out how people react when they arive a
dinner party, where there is no food, no hostess, and the host has been shot.
See who's making this possible:
- The Grossman family of Grossman Marketing
- Louise J Mueller & David G Lagala
- Jeffrey & Maryanne Larkin of Arvad's Grill and Pub
- Carol & David Loysen
- George & Virginia Pierce
- Paul & Louise Reed of Sundown Corp.
- John Reynolds of ST Paving
- John & Val Vincent of Vincent's Pharmacy
The theatre is a 150-seat black-box style theater set in a unique fabric building (sort of a tent,
but not really). It's set along Route 100 between Waterbury and Stowe, and is an easy drive from
either direction. The parking lot is bordered by blueberry bushes, providing free preshow and
intermission picking (in season).
The Playhouse is home to the Waterbury Festival Players, a semi-professional group offering non-musical
productions for adult audiences throughout the season.
The theater and its production company are the realization of the dream of
George and Ginger Pierce to make this type of theater available to the performers
and theater-going community of central Vermont. They are both active in the
theater's performances and operation, and welcome you to enjoy the magic of
live performance theater along with them.
