The Wilton Playshop
Community Theater since 1937
Since 1937, the mission of The Wilton Playshop has been to further the performing arts by providing quality live theatre to the greater Wilton area, and by doing so, provide an educational and growing experience for all involved.
The Wilton Playshop is a volunteer organization with a governing Board of Directors. There are generally three major productions presented each year along with special events through our Applause Series. The Applause Series is a separate program from a traditional season where the theatre features concerts, readings, works in progress and unique performance events. In some circumstances the Playshop is approached by an artist who is interested in a producing partner for their idea or concept. This series supports those opportunities.
As a community-oriented endeavor, The Playshop is committed to developing new directors and playwrights as a means of preserving this important art form. Backstage involvement includes producing, directing, stage management, light and sound engineering, scenic design, properties, costumes, set construction, and a myriad of other jobs that constitute an energetic community theater. We encourage active participation and we always welcome new faces. No experience is necessary — only desire and interest!
