  • Who we are & what we do...

    We are theater artists from many disciplines, and

    we are theater lovers who want more original works.

    "Secrets" Cast from our 2015 TenFest



    What do we do?

    We promote original theater works written by Vermont Writers. We consider a Vermont Writer anyone who has lived in Vermont for a period of three consecutive months at any time in their lives. We believe that in living a season in Vermont, people create lasting connections to the state that they take with them when the move, and we recognize that our seasonal community members contribute a value to our local artist community.
