The Schoolhouse Theater, a nonprofit organization, is a venerable cultural center devoted to professional theater at the highest possible standard.  We are committed to bringing new, innovative and ground breaking programs and plays to the community.  It is a place where new work is explored, and a place where things begin.  Additionally, our galleries also host local artists, sculptors, and photographers from all over the county.   

Through classes for children, live theater, jazz, comedy, slam poetry and story telling we have sought to be a landmark home for all of the arts in Westchester County.

The Schoolhouse Theater in Croton Falls

The beautiful building that houses The Schoolhouse Theater was formerly the Croton Falls elementary school. In 1983 founder Lee Popetransformed the building into a visual arts center. At that time the cafeteria, gym, and auditorium space was simply a white walled room with no risers and twelve borrowed lights.

In 1987, Ms. Pope invited Manhattan's Acorn Productions to bring their recently produced play, Bedroom Farce, by Alan Ayckbourn to the building. Starring Brooke Palance and Michael Wilding, its limited run was a huge success and The Schoolhouse Theater was born.

Gradually over the years theatrical amenities were added and a number of talented local theater companies presented shows in the space. But it was Pamela Moller Kareman, former Artistic Director of Acorn, who stayed in close touch, and she and Lee Pope charted a clear vision of growth for The Schoolhouse with its unique intimate space.

In 1998 The Schoolhouse Theater became a full fledged not for profit professional regional theater.

The Schoolhouse has been honored by visits from a number of theater luminaries including playwrights Jules Feiffer, George Furth, Tina Howe, Michael Weller, and Paul Zindel, who all came to see productions of their work and lend support to our theater. 

 

We have successfully launched three productions to Off-Broadway: Arthur Miller's The Crucible, Ingmar Bergman's Nora, S.N. Behrman's Biography, and Elaine Del Valle's Brownsville Bred.
