Welcome To Our 91st Season!

We are looking forward to a very exciting summer

2021 Events

Our Town

Thornton Wilder

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.

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.

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!
