Theaters and Performance

Vermont has a long history of summer theater and art performance dating back into the 19th Century. These traditions live on today in the professional playhouses and local theaters found around the state. Some of the best regional performance in New England is ready to entertain every summer throughout Vermont. Enjoy drama and comedy as well as the classics at the Oldcastle Theatre Company in Bennington. Across Vermont’s northern tier you’ll be dazzled by your choices of over 15 performance companies from the Barre Opera House to the Vermont Stage Company in Burlington. And the charming July series of performances at the Vermont Children’s Theater in Lyndonville is perfect for young families.

The festivals and celebrations of Vermont are reason enough for a visit. And the Green Mountains have much to celebrate – from the pivotal role in the American Revolution, the legends of the Green Mountain Boys to our mountain traditions, arts and crafts. Seasonal festivals attract artists, craftspeople, history-buffs, interested folk and families from all over the nation. So select the programs of your choice and book a dazzling show on a warm Vermont evening.

Finally, the spectacle of the big tent from the traveling Circus Smirkus is a Green Mountain celebration at its best!
