    Changing Lives, One Story at a Time…

    Northern Stage is a regional non-profit LORT-D professional theater company located in White River Junction, VT with a mission to change lives, one story at a time. We actively engage our audiences with world-class productions and extensive educational and outreach programs and serve more than 50,000 community members each year.
    Founded in 1997 by Brooke Ciardelli, Northern Stage has since become the preeminent year-round theater company in the region, offering professional productions of world premieres, classics, and musicals. In 2013, the Board of Directors engaged a new leadership team to galvanize Northern Stage for its next stage of evolution. Led by Producing Artistic Director Carol Dunne and Managing Director Eric Bunge, this new team illuminated Northern Stage’s impact on its community with a firm commitment to intimate engagement. In 2018, Irene Green became the Managing Director, and Eric Bunge stepped into the new position of Special Projects Manager to help support the company in its new phase of growth and development.
    With a commitment to the development of new work for the American theater, Northern Stage launched New Works Now in 2014. The program has been extraordinarily successful with world premieres continuing to our main stage, Off-Broadway, and beyond.
    A robust educational program focuses on professional training in a nurturing and supportive environment for students of all ages. Offerings include student acting ensembles, a summer musical theater intensive, and an expansive theater-in-the-schools residency program.

    Our New Home

    In 2014, Northern Stage embarked upon the Campaign for Northern Stage, a $9 million plan to build our own theatrical home and capitalize the company for future stability and growth. The Barrette Center for the Arts was opened – on time and under budget – in October of 2015. With a building cost of $7.4 million, this 240-seat modified-thrust theater enhances the live theater experience and allows Northern Stage’s audiences and artists to explore exciting new dimensions in theatrical programming and artistry. Additionally, the Campaign for Northern Stage raised $1.6 million to build a financial foundation upon which the organization will thrive.
