About the Weathervane
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 the stage. Center and side aisles make access easy from three entryways. The Box Office operates daily during the season.
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 alternate Monday through Saturday in July and August. Since 1966 the theatre has produced a wide variety of titles as listed here: 52 Seasons of Shows.
Weathervane Theatre Players, Inc. is a federally-registered not-for-profit corporation led by a volunteer Board of Directors and managed by contracted staff. The fiscal year runs October 1 through September 30.
Winner of multiple NH Theatre Awards and nominations, Weathervane Company, Board, Staff and audiences always have plenty to celebrate!
In addition to the Theatre’s public performance property, the Weathervane owns the former Spalding Inn that is used to house the theatre staff. And thanks to the Weathervane Theatre Alumni Association the theatre utilizes the Mount Washington Grange Hall for rehearsal, costume shop and storage and office space.
