What was originally built as a tannery in 1835 has transformed into the nationally recognized Westport Country Playhouse
. Founded in 1931 by New York theater producer Lawrence Langner, the Westport Country Playhouse is open for enjoyment and community events year round. Some of these events include live theater experiences of the highest quality, family festivities, Script in Hand
play readings, and special performances for students and teachers. This beautiful and historic playhouse has stayed true to its mission to enrich, enlighten, and engage the community through the power of professionally produced theater worth talking about. Today, the nonprofit Westport Country Playhouse serves as a cultural nexus for patrons, artists and students and is a treasured resource for the state of Connecticut.
