Who We are: Town Hall Theater is a busy performing arts center in the heart of Middlebury. Built in 1883, the building has had many lives: vaudeville theater, restaurant, car dealership, furniture showroom, Knights of Columbus hall, etc. Community support and a lot of hard work restored the building in 2008, making it home to several local resident companies and the hub of Middlebury’s cultural scene. Unpretentious and community-minded, we produce more than 150 events a year, from live theatre to fly fishing films and everything in between. With a small staff of 6 full time and 4 part time employees, Town Hall Theater offers a warm and inclusive environment. Interns are part of the team and quickly become invaluable in their myriad roles.
