The Playhouse makes live
theater accessible to our entire community: through the presentation of student matinees, family-friendly shows, and community
programs; and through the development of supportive teaching materials that connect our season and family shows to local school
curricula and age-appropriate literature.
The Playhouse also offers an academic opporunity for college-aged students through the Joanne Woodward Internship Program, a nationally respected training program for
emerging professionals. Through our community programs, we seek to engage our region without regard to age, experience, or
economic means; and through our partnerships with other local cultural institutions, we aim to establish Westport Country
Playhouse as a site for artistic collaboration and discourse.
