Welcome to Plainfield’s Historic Town Hall Opera House!
This classic 1840 Greek Revival building on U.S. Route 2 in Plainfield, Vermont, originally a Universalist Church, was converted by local citizens into an opera house for the benefit of local residents and visitors in 1911. It has recently undergone a major renovation so that it can continue to serve as the cultural and civic center for the people of Plainfield and nearby communities for years to come.
The Plainfield Town Hall Opera House is a modest-sized, affordable venue, with a capacity of 240 people (including a balcony that holds 45).
It is available to host all kinds of events – opera, theater, lectures, dances, movies, weddings, meetings, and other special events. It is valued for its excellent acoustic qualities and for the ambiance created by its high, tin-clad ceilings and walls, its hardwood floor, tall sash windows, proscenium stage and red velvet curtains.
The building is owned and maintained by the town of Plainfield and is managed by the non-profit “Friends of the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House” (FTHOH), an organization of volunteers dedicated to keeping the arts and community alive and thriving in Plainfield and the surrounding region.
