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!
