   About Ridgefield Playhouse

   After many years of planning, fundraising, and building, the dream
of restoring the Cass Gilbert Jr.-designed theater in Ridgefield
became a reality with our December 2000 opening night performance by
Jose Feliciano.

   Since the Ridgefield Playhouse's opening, enthusiastic, sold-out
audiences have enjoyed Peter Yarrow, Marcel Marceau, Barbara Cook,
Moscow Boys Choir, Joan Baez, and The Bacon Brothers. Film-goers have
seen a range of movies from Oscar-winners such as Traffic and Chocolat
to family fare to our international film series. Community events such
as the Ridgefield High School Orchestra Concert and the Annual Town
Meeting found a new home at The Playhouse.

   Designed in 1938, the auditorium in "the old high school" (now the
Richard E. Venus Municipal Center) was at one time the center of
Ridgefield's cultural life. In its heyday, before being abandoned in
1972, it was home to school performances as well as community events
and town meetings. During World War II, residents had the privilege of
twice hearing the legendary Arturo Toscanini conduct here.
