Next Stage Arts Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping art happen
through the programming, development and operation of the 160 seat Next Stage theater, a performing arts facility in Putney, Vermont. We celebrate the diversity of artistic expression by fostering a collaborative environment for audiences, performers, and community based arts and educational organizations, and we are committed to enhancing the village of Putney as a cultural center.
At present, due to the age, design, and historic nature of the the 1841 structure, Next Stage is not an accessible facility. Next Stage Arts is committed to working with the building’s owner, Putney Historical Society, to make the building fully accessible for all audiences, and initial architectural plans for the conversion have been completed.
Next Stage, located inside 15 Kimball Hill, a beautiful, historic 1841 building right in Putney’s village center, opened officially in March 2011. We already have a very full schedule of events including classical music concerts presented in partnership with the Yellow Barn Music Festival, and folk/rock concerts presented in cooperation with Twilight Music. We also develop and present programming concepts including Next Stage Speaks, our spoken word series and independent films featured in our new Next Stage Cinema movie house. You can send questions, comments, or inquiries about Next Stage events through the Contact Us page.
Next Stage Arts Project is collaborating with other area organizations including the Putney Central School and the Putney Community Center to help make art happen in our town.
