Celebrating Our Heritage | Securing Our Future


The Peterborough Players online auction is back and better than ever, with many more items, services, and trips! However, due to the pandemic that has rendered the theatre dark for the summer, we have had to rearrange our year. This year our online auction is running from October 11 – October 25, 2020!

There is always something surprising, thought-provoking or moving happening on stage at the Players, but we count on friends like you to help us produce professional live summer theatre right here in the Monadnock region, and to bring you the HD Live at the Met operas, and the National Theatre screenings from London. Ticket sales normally cover 60% of the cost of running the theatre, but this year, with no summer season, we are relying on the online auction more than ever to achieve our financial goals. Our fabulous Virtual Gala will be held on November 7, 2020 and we anticipate a very lively and entertaining evening indeed.

We must recoup the vital funds needed to keep the Peterborough Player’s functioning at the high level of expertise our patrons have come to expect from us, and by bidding on these items you are guaranteeing that we will be able to continue providing you with the magic of year-round theatre as soon as our "forced intermission” is over.

Thank you! And please join us in APPLAUDING our very generous sponsors:

About the Peterborough Players

Peterborough Players is a cultural treasure; an 90-year-old, fully professional nonprofit Equity theatre in an unexpected setting—an historic barn, three miles outside of downtown Peterborough, NH. Normally, the theatre offers a traditional summer season from June through September, a three-play winter season, “The Met: Live in HD” operas and London’s National Theatre offerings, all with a challenging repertoire ranging from the classics, to the best of contemporary theatre, and big book musicals. The Players produces professional theatre at a level of quality that has gained it a significant national reputation. “American summer repertory theatre at its most accomplished” – Terry Teachout, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.

“The Barn,” now renovated to a 250 seat theatre, is a cultural and economic cornerstone, drawing audiences from all over the Monadnock region and beyond and fulfilling its historic mission to: “Enrich the human experience by producing quality live professional theatre, developing and training theatre artists, and offering New Hampshire a wide variety of performing arts events.” The Players trains young theatre artists through our Second Company of interns who spend the summer season learning all aspects of the craft, and perform in a show produced especially for young audiences.

As part of our deep belief that the arts should be accessible to ALL, we offer “Players Gives” outreach programs. Players Gives helps broaden accessibility to live theatre by providing reduced-cost tickets to those in the community who might not otherwise be able to attend, while also creating partnerships and lending a helping hand to meaningful organizations who do a lot of good in the community.

The Peterborough Players is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
