    When you support Dorset Theatre Festival, you enrich the work onstage, behind-the-scenes, and in the community.


    Dorset Theatre Festival brings the best of Off-Broadway to Vermont through world and regional premieres and fosters emerging voices through new play development programs including the annual New Play Reading series, Women Artists Writing Group, and more.


    Through the Festival’s apprenticeship program, the next generation of theatre technicians, designers, and administrators learn side-by-side current professionals in an immersive professional setting.

    In the community:

    Dorset Theatre Festival is committed to making the arts accessible to all. Through community initiatives like the Giving Back program, reduced-rate tickets are offered to various community groups from military members and veterans, to farmers, EMS workers, and more.

    The Festival also facilitates playwriting residencies in local schools, working with young writers throughout the season to polish their pieces for the autumn’s Jean E. Miller Young Playwrights Competition.
