The Sharon Playhouse is theatre by and for everyone. It is a “teaching theatre” (like a “teaching hospital”) designed to further the growth of artists, both onstage and offstage. Novice actors of all ages are trained and mentored, experienced actors find opportunities to enhance their careers and emerging writers showcase their work. It is a professional theatre – producing quality musicals with Broadway caliber talent. It is a place where musical theatre is celebrated and tomorrow’s generation of actors and audiences is born.
About Sharon Playhouse
In the late 1920’s and 1930’s, a group of Sharon residents formed a play-reading group – at first for their own pleasure and then as they hoped, for their friends’ and neighbors’ entertainment. People in the area seemed to appreciate the idea of a local place where they could hear the words of famous playwrights interpreted by talented readers. After a few years, and with a growing audience, the original group was taken over by the well-known mystery writer Judson Phillips, who created a small regional Equity theater in the red barn that stands today as The Sharon Playhouse.
