ABOUT THE COMPANY
The Plainfield Little Theatre has been active in Plainfield, Vermont since 1930, offering lectures, concerts, puppet shows, plays, one-acts, and musicals, including some original works by local playwrights. It has been best known over the years for staging the operettas of Gilbert & Sullivan. The company was active until 1956, presenting up to four plays each year, but interest declined and in 1970 its extensive collection of authentic period costumes was donated to the Montpelier Theater Guild. In 1974, the Plainfield Little Theatre was revived with a production of Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man, and remained very active throughout the 1970s and 1980s as one of only a handful of community theater groups in Central Vermont.
