NH Performance Theaters: North Country Summer Theaters.

UpState NH Performance Theaters.

 

NH North Country Theater

Music & Theater in NH's North County is a generations old tradition. Some venues are seasonal, some are merely 'calm' during the cold months (heating and weather event cancellations, and low population make costs unrealistic for several venues.) Many facilities offer a mix of movies, shows and concerts just to balance the budget. All are striving to be the best they can be with dollars in short supply.

Venues are listed alphabetically by town.


Predominately Live Music Venues

Berlin: St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts     752-1028

There are few things better than seeing a drama or comedy unfold with live actors, and enjoying other people's reaction. The magic of escaping into an alternate reality, and emerging into a warm summer evening, especially if the experience is shared.
