Owner description: 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 aread 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!

“Perfect Backwoods Local Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Peterborough Players building has been used for years for local theater and semi-professional talent alike. The theater is an old refurbished barn with comfortable seating. The outside has plenty of standing around after the show room. A nice garden and patio area welcome you into the theater. A must see when you visit Peterborough.

“Great little place to see a show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

This place is out in the woods, and is an AWESOME place to see a show. My favorite band has played there several times now and I can't wait for the next show in a couple of weeks. Not a bad seat in the house! Very comfortable!!

“Love the Players”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

I've been going to the players yearly since I was a teenager. My mother and I went at least 2-3 times a year and I still continue to go on a regular basis. I'm hoping to take my oldest daughter for the first time this year. They do such a wonderful job - a great performance is guaranteed.

“great show, lovely venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is a great summer theatre venue, rustic atmosphere but very comfortable for the audience.
Great programs, we saw Four Hands Two Pianos and enjoyed it very much. The two men who performed were top notch!
Theater has comfortable seating, good lines of sight and excellent sound quality.

“Great shows, great company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This acting company consistently brings home awards in the "Best of NH" each year, and for good reason. They have a history of attracting premier actors - both well known and local - year after year. We see most of their plays each year, and they are always well acted and well directed, with a few each year reaching the superb level. Highly recommended.
