|Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately
hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies
the antic banter of its characters.
Central Vermont's Professional Theater
We offer some of the best local actors and theater
technicians that central Vermont can provide.
Dedicated to producing the highest quality non-musical shows possible, the Waterbury
Festival Playhouse brings you the shows you won't see anywhere else. Also, we are so
confident of the quality of our productions we guarantee them. If you don't feel
you've seen a high-quality production, we'll give you your money back.
Our 2016 season is the 10th season for the Players. It is a little shorter than most of
our seasons featuring only one show. We picked "Steel Magnolias" and are featuring some of the ladies
of the Waterbury Festival Playhouse ensemble.
See who's making this possible:
- The Grossman family of Grossman Marketing
- Louise J Mueller & David G Lagala
- Jeffrey & Maryanne Larkin of Arvad's Grill and Pub
- Carol & David Loysen
- George & Virginia Pierce
- Paul & Louise Reed of Sundown Corp.
- John Reynolds of ST Paving
- John & Val Vincent of Vincent's Pharmacy
The theatre is a 150-seat black-box style theater set in a unique fabric building (sort of a tent,
but not really). It's set along Route 100 between Waterbury and Stowe, and is an easy drive from
either direction. The parking lot is bordered by blueberry bushes, providing free preshow and
intermission picking (in season).
The Playhouse is home to the Waterbury Festival Players, a professional group offering non-musical
productions for adult audiences throughout the season.
The theater and its production company are the realization of the dream of
George and Ginger Pierce to make this type of theater available to the performers
and theater-going community of central Vermont. They are both active in the
theater's performances and operation, and welcome you to enjoy the magic of
live performance theater along with them.
