Bennington Community Theater

Bennington Community Theater intends to offer quality community theater that will be separate from the professional theater offered by Oldcastle Theatre but — as part of Oldcastle’s transition in to a year around performing arts center — will be under the direction and control of the same board of directors.

While Oldcastle Theatre has been staging professional theater here since 1972, there also have been various community theater groups in Bennington over the years, dating back to the 19th century when amateur performances were staged at The Bennington Opera House along with traveling minstrel shows and professional touring companies performing “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and even an occasional opera. The most recent version of community theater here was created several years ago by Robert Ebert, who will continue to be involved with the project as it moves under Oldcastle’s expanding performing arts center umbrella.
