HISTORY

From an idea hatched by two veteran theater colleagues, David Rowland and Lucinda Kidder, Silverthorne Theater Company has emerged to become a major player in the culture-rich Western Massachusetts/Pioneer Valley theater scene.

Since that first two-show season in 2014, Silverthorne Theater Company is now ranked among the premiere regional companies, Valley Variety – 2018 in Review.

Our audiences have quickly come to know they can trust STC to mount exceptional productions of works by well-known writers – as well as exciting new pieces. We are committed to our base in the Upper Pioneer Valley  and to hiring our artists and technicians from the remarkable talent pool taken from the entire Pioneer Valley and surrounding area.
