Town Hall Theater’s outdoor season in swing

'SHOW UP, KIDS' is an improv show for kids and adults.

Town Hall Theater (THT) is getting ready to launch its inaugural outdoor season, featuring live music, comedy, plays, talks, films, food trucks and more. Performances will pop up around THT, at Middlebury’s Marble Works District, Woodchuck Cider, Swift House, and other carefully curated locations across Addison and Chittenden Counties. In addition to THT-produced programming, we are thrilled to partner with resident companies, including the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival and Middlebury Acting Company on their debut outdoor film and theatre offerings.  
“Town Hall Theater has a sensational slate of events planned and underway. We are elated to share live performance outdoors and help drive foot traffic for dinner and a show, as well as to shops and other local businesses,” said Lisa Mitchell, Executive Director of THT.
With the support of an anonymous gift dedicated to supporting arts access, THT is thrilled to launch the outdoor season with a series of sensational free and low-cost events. Also, thanks to the George & Sue Cady Fund, we are pleased to offer a limited number of free and discounted tickets for those who would like to attend a show but have limited resources.
