This community-based theatre organization has been voted Fairfield County’s “Best Local Theatre Group” five years running and there’s good reason. From Broadway classic musicals like HELLO, DOLLY to dramatic works like TWELVE ANGRY MEN and everything in between, there’s something for everyone’s taste with virtually one show each month at the group’s Sterling Farms home.

They’re also the only year ‘round producing organization in Stamford. The 180-seat Kweskin Theatre – currently being remodeled and scheduled to open in February 2010, and the 100-seat Dressing Room Theatre – a bring your own everything dinner theatre space, are both kept very active throughout the year.

They also offer full-day summer programming for ages six to sixteen.
