This Summer season we are putting the health and safety of our community and artists first.
With that being stated, it is with great sadness that we have to announce that what would have been our 10th anniversary season under the current leadership of the Woodstock Playhouse, our 2020 Summer Theatre Festival has been canceled. While in the upcoming months we may see a change moving us slowly from our isolation to resuming ‘normal’ activities, our concern for the public health and safety has led our board of directors to this unavoidable and unanimous decision.
We are grateful to our summer sponsors, their logos and links posted below, for their continued support; support which will help us, in some part, to maintain the Woodstock Playhouse until the time comes when we feel it is safe to reopen our doors.
A fantastic season was ahead of us; a season which included ‘Anything Goes’, ‘The Will Rogers Follies’, ‘Blithe Spirit’, ‘Charlotte’s Web’ and ‘Cabaret’; all with a magnificent cast, crew and staff assembled, ready and eager for the first day of rehearsal and opening day.
Above all else, we wish you and your loved-ones good health, safety and comfort during this time.
We understand that these are financially difficult times for many, but if you are in a position to be able to show your support during this austere time, a period of time since March, which will amount to at least six months of being dark for the Woodstock Playhouse, we would be ever so grateful. No gift is too small nor too great for you to be recognized as a member of our circle of friends at the iconic Woodstock Playhouse. Along with our sponsors, your name will be posted on both the homepage and donor page of our website, proudly displaying your role in sustaining the longevity of live performances at the Woodstock Playhouse.
Yours in solidarity and with gratitude,
Randy Conti, Executive Director
Diane Stein, President
Douglas Farrell, Company Manager

The Gallery at the Woodstock Playhouse
The signed Iconic Photographs of Elliott Landy, legendary local and official photographer of the Woodstock '69 Festival, are now on exhibit in the galleries of the Woodstock Playhouse. Elliott Landy's photographs document the music scene during that classic rock and roll period which culminated with the 1969 Woodstock Festival. All stellar, iconic photographs are available for purchase.
Additionally on display, there is a collection of Summer 'Woodstock Festival' booklets from 1957 through 1968, an image of Richie Havens on stage at the Woodstock Playhouse in 1968, and more historic posters celebrating the roots of the Woodstock Playhouse and Festival.
You can also view an oil painting on linen created by Artist Mary Elwyn, cousin of Woodstock Playhouse founder, Robert Elwyn. The painting entitled “The Sawkill – Woodstock NY” is signed and inscribed with title and “to commemorate Robert Elwyn and the 75th anniversary of the Woodstock Playhouse” penned on the canvas support framing. The painting is a very rare work of art as Mary Elwyn’s oil paintings are quite limited in number and her family lineage is connected to the very establishment of the hamlet of Woodstock and the Woodstock Playhouse.
Our History wall is a wonderful way to understand and embrace the history of our Playhouse as both a rural extension of Broadway and launching pad for so many careers in major motion pictures, Broadway and television in the fields of performance, design, direction, music and so much more.
