In 1929, the Dorset Playhouse, in which Dorset Theatre Festival now operates each season, first opened its doors. The Playhouse was constructed out of three area barns put together by locals.

The Dorset Playhouse itself is shared with the Dorset Players, a community theatre company and the Playhouse’s current owners. Dorset Theatre Festival is in residence from May through September each year, and the Dorset Players are in residence the rest of the time.

In June 2001, following a $3-million-dollar capital campaign by the Dorset Theatre Festival, a newly restored playhouse opened, featuring improved sight lines, more comfortable seating, more restroom facilities, and a new rehearsal studio. The three area barns that went into the construction of the original building were incorporated into the updated design.

  • What a great little theater! We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Rustic old barn feel meets comfortable intimate playhouse.

  • A gem in the quiet village of Dorset, wonderful productions, staging and small theater with a summer stock feel...fun, you'll love it
  • Awesome place in the Northshire for wonderful talent and entertainment (with some famous folks, too). We are so fortunate to have this place in "our backyard". Affordable and fun!
