The New London Barn Playhouse is one of New England’s most cherished summer-stock theaters, presenting excellent theater created by emerging artists in collaboration with accomplished professionals. Actors and directors come together for three months each summer to create an unrivalled theater season noted for its fresh approach and talented acting company. The theater has served a large audience each summer since 1933 in New Hampshire’s beautiful Lake Sunapee region.

I've been a subscriber for many years and it just keeps getting better. At least two of the recent interns are now on Broadway. Usually well known musicals performed by about 16 college aged performers. We just saw West Side Story and it was great.

We saw a play here that was most enjoyable. Founded in the 1930's, this group has been performing in an authentic old barn and is a must if you want to experience an old summer tradition in New London. It is earnest and enthusiastic.
