The WaterFire Theater Under the Stars

Welcome to the WaterFire Theater Under the Stars schedule page. This page will be updated on an on-going basis with new information as it becomes available. The WaterFire Theater Under the Stars is presented in collaboration with The Wilbury Theatre Group premiering experimental theatre, original works, films, concerts, dance and visual presentations including family and holiday films.

The health and safety of visitors is top priority. This unique outdoor theater offers visitors a safe ‘drive-in’ experience where original and national arts events may be viewed from the warmth and safety of patron’s cars, tuning into 102.9 FM to hear the audio. Images will be projected onto a 40’ wide screen with state of the art projection capacity.
