The arts are an essential public good that is critical to a vibrant society, and it is our mission to advance the art form of theatre through work that inspires, engages, and entertains the people of our community and beyond.
Where we Started
The Playhouse was founded in 2004 by siblings Lesley Pankhurst and Bryan Halperin and their spouses Neil and Johanna with the vision of bringing quality arts and arts education to The Lakes Region. The theatre has become a cultural gem in the area winning both critical acclaim and becoming an important outlet for the performing arts in central New Hampshire.
Where we are now
In June, 2013 the Playhouse opened a brand new 194 seat Mainstage theatre on its Meredith campus. The Playhouse operates on Reservoir Rd on the formerly Annalee Dolls campus.
