Logo   Dorset Playhouse, Vermont
For recreation, Dorset has the Dorset Playhouse, down beyond the church just past the end of the town green on Cheney Road (map).


Opened in 1929, the Dorset Playhouse is a year-round venue for theater, music and other productions, drawing audiences from Vermont and well beyond.

Summer Theater

The highly-regarded professional Dorset Theatre Festival occupies the Playhouse each summer from June through September to stage five main-stage plays and numerous other entertainments, some designed specifically for families, some with big-name actors and performers.

The Festival is known for its premiers of new works, some of which go on to Broadway and to win top awards.
