The Vermont Children's Theater provides the children in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont with a practical introduction to theatre, developing theatrical technique, self-confidence and personal responsibility regardless of their ability to pay. The VCT is committed to the pleasure, enjoyment, sense of self worth and accomplishment of children, collectively and as individuals. Family members are invited and encouraged to take an active role with their children, as volunteers in the many support activities required for the success of the program.
VCT is the outgrowth of a program that began in Peacham over 20 years ago with the presentation of a variety show by a group of local children under the direction of Nancy Hartswick in the dining room of Peacham Church. In 1990, a large barn on the property of the Wildflower Inn was made available to the VCT. The barn was converted into a 200-seat theater, and the first production in the new theater was Barnum in the summer of 1991. This summer begins our 3rd decade in the barn.
The Vermont Children’s Theater is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and contributions are tax deductable.
Although we do have revenue from ticket sales, we purposely keep the ticket prices low so all community members can attend. We depend on additional support from the community to allow us to fund this free program for local children. Your kind contributions help us reach this goal.
