Welcome To Our 91st Season!We are looking forward to a very exciting summer
July 27 – 31
Described by Edward Albee as “the greatest American play ever written,” Our Town presents the small town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, the play depicts the simple daily lives of the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually–in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre–die. Audiences can expect a glorious modern interpretation of this classic American play.
This show will be held on our newly constructed outdoor stage on the lawn of the Tamworth History Center. We are excited to bring live theatre back to the village and are looking forward to creating a summertime buzz which will hopefully benefit the Tamworth business community as well.
Far From Canterbury
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Danny K. Bernstein
August 11 -21
A reimagined telling of “The Wife of Bath’s Tale” of Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, Far From Canterbury takes us to a world where fairy tales are considered current events, and tells the story of a shy young knight who will be sentenced to death, unless in one year, he can answer one simple riddle: “What is it that women desire most?”
This show will also be held on our newly constructed outdoor stage on the lawn of the Tamworth History Center.
To Be Announced

The Barnstormers Theatre
The Barnstormers, located in the scenic village of Tamworth, NH, is one of the longest-running professional summer theatres in the country.
The company was founded in 1931 by Francis Cleveland, the youngest son of President Grover Cleveland, Francis’s wife Alice and their friend Ed Goodnow – all of whom were involved with theatre on Broadway. Over eighty years later, their legacy continues.
Today, The Barnstormers is one of three Equity theatres in New Hampshire and provides the region with brilliant summer theatre.
Like most theatres nationwide, ticket sales cover only about half of income needs, so every gift to The Barnstormers is greatly appreciated.
What’s New At The Barnstormers
On March 31 George Cleveland chatted with Artistic Director, Joe Longthorne about joining The Barnstormers Theatre and hints about the 2021 summer season.

My summer trip to visit family in NH wouldn't be complete without taking in a performance at The Barnstormers! It was a tradition of my grandparents, and my parents, and we now share this with our children! Over the years I've been to performances on and off Broadway, in San Francisco and Los Angeles. The Barnstormers consistently pleases with its top quality performers and well mounted productions! Taking in a performance in Tamworth is a magical ride and I look forward to it every time!
Got a Question?
To keep vital the value, spirit, and tradition of fine summer theatre in Tamworth and to provide a venue for and to promote varied cultural activities within the region.
