About Us

Founded in 1933, the Peterborough Players offers professional theatre of the highest quality and has established a reputation for itself as a prime destination in the region.

The Peterborough Players presents its work in an intimate theatre located in a converted 18th-century barn at historic Stearns Farm, three miles from downtown Peterborough. The state-of-the-art theatre seats 250 in air-conditioned comfort.

As the only professional producing theatre in the region and one of the oldest summer stock companies in the country, the Players has staged more than 300 different plays over the years. Distinctive from the programming of many other summer theatres, the Players has presented a variety of world and regional premieres and works by contemporary playwrights as well as the classics.

Seven Main Stage productions are produced each season and two Second Company shows for children. During the "off" season, (October - May), The Metropolitan Opera and London's National Theatre is broadcast onto the "big screen" at the Players.

Residents of New Hampshire as well as daytrippers from the greater New England area enjoy coming to our charming, rural setting to experience excellent theatre, as well as high definition broadcast offerings. Our Getaway Easy packages with local Inns and restaurants make the Peterborough Players a sought-after destination for out-of-towners as well, or locals who want an affordable, low-stress “getaway” without having to travel far!
