About Us

Whitefield, NH has been home to the Weathervane since its founding in 1966.  The Theatre sits proudly on Route 3 (Lancaster Road) a few miles north of the quaint village.  A 250-seat capacity auditorium has no obstructed views and is arranged in tiered seating with no seat further than 40 feet from a capacious open stage.  Center and side aisles make access easy from three entry aisles and lobbies.  The Box Office operates daily in-season; and will-call is conveniently located in the spacious South Lobby, full of historic and timely displays of information and a photo history of our 52+ years.

The performance signature of the Weathervane is the practice of performing seven Mainstage productions in 8 weeks, scheduled in alternating repertory with a core Company of resident professional actors.  Lively musicals, droll comedies and moving dramas weave through summer nights in July and August, Monday through Saturday… over the years, we’ve produced a wide variety of titles, represented here with a comprehensive list: 52 Seasons of Shows

Weathervane Theatre Players, Inc. is a federally-registered not-for-profit corporation, with responsibility by a volunteer Board of Directors, and managed by contracted staff.  The fiscal and operational year runs October 1 through the following September 30 to accommodate a summer performance and programming Season.
