Our theater tradition is strong here in New Hampshire. Dramas, musicals, comedies, and operas unfold on indoor and outdoor stages throughout the state, particularly in the summer months. The Barnstormers, founded in Tamworth, New Hampshire, in 1931, is the world's last theater to sustain the tradition of staging eight different plays in eight weeks during its summer run. Look forward to a magical afternoon or evening of live entertainment and enriching memories when you purchase your tickets to a show at a New Hampshire theater.
