Lamoille County Players at the Hyde Park Opera House

People are coming to the Stowe area to see a Wait Until Dark production in a historic theater.


Theater-masksIf you enjoy the theater and thrillers, you'll have a great time watching "Wait Until Dark" presented by the Lamoille County Players at the Hyde Park Opera House in Hyde Park, Vermont. 

WAIT UNTIL DARK
by Frederick Knott

November 13-15 and 20-22, 2015
Special $10 Matinee on November 15th

At the Historic Hyde Park Opera House


The Hyde Park Opera House was built in 1912 and was originally designed to be the town hall. The building served as a town hall, a place for Sunday services, and a location for high school graduations. A production of "The Mikado" was held at this theater in Stowe area in 1952 to benefit a church that needed a new furnace. The first performance was such a success that the tradition continued. The Lamoille County Players were established in 1953.

"Wait Until Dark" by Frederick Knott was not only a Broadway hit, but a classic film starring Audrey Hepburn.  If you've seen this story before, you know how thrilling it is.  If you haven't, don't miss this chance to see a wonderful classic that highlights the art of suspense!  How will this blind woman outwit her attacker?  Find out in November - the suspense is nail-biting and will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Make your night at the theater into a long weekend by staying with us at the Green Mountain Inn in Stowe. We offer rooms, suites, townhouses, and apartments for the perfect accommodations to make your stay a special one.
