About"One of the best regional theaters in America" -NYC Drama LeagueMissionLNT's founder, Kim Bent, grew up in Braintree, Vermont on a hill farm that looks across the East Granville Valley toward the Braintree Mountains.One particular part of the range is known locally as "Lost Nation." For locals it is a special place. A place to dream and reflect. There's a lovely view, but it's mainly a place to camp, hike, and hunt-a challenging place to get to and to come back from.As Kim traveled the country he realized there are many "lost nations" throughout America. Almost always rural, often remote and almost never on maps, they are known only by the people who live near them.So "Lost Nation" says something real to us about our vision and our mission. It locates us out there, on the frontier, breaking boundaries, doing dramatic and courageous things. Yet it grounds us, identifies us as belonging to a place and to a community.We work hard at integrating our programs with the community. We feel privileged to have been able to make a strong positive contribution toward the "good life" here in Vermont. Despite the on-going long hours, the journey continues to be a deeply satisfying one.Commitment to Community is fundamental to Lost Nation:The Theater with Heart in the Heart of Vermont.Company OverviewLost Nation Theater prides itself on being a professional theater committed to community. Named One of the Best Regional Theaters in America by the NYC Drama LeagueDescriptionLocated in the City Hall of Vermont's capital, Montpelier, this unique 3/4 thrust stage brings unique and thought provoking theater to Vermont!General informationLNT's office hours are Tuesdays-Fridays Noon-4pm.

We saw the marvelous production of "Sylvia" last week which was hilarious, poignant and very well acted - especially Sylvia, the dog. The space, carved out of a much larger room is very nice, hardly any bad seats, and with great acoustics.More
