  • $70 for 70 years at Garrison Players!

    2023 is a big year! Not only is it the 400th anniversary of the founding of Dover, New Hampshire, it’s also the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Seacoast’s one and only community theater: Garrison Players!

    After putting on shows for decades in a variety of venues around the city, in 1986 they purchased the Hiram R. Roberts Grange Hall in Rollinsford and began the slow and expensive process of renovation, opening their first show there in 2003. Re-named the Garrison Players Arts Center (now in its 20th anniversary!), their home has provided quality community theater, top-notch youth performing arts education, and space for both individual and group performing artists, as well as community youth education groups.

    Now, their venerable old building needs the community's help. On this momentous anniversary, they are asking members and supporters to donate $70 to keep them going for another 70 years! $70 for the 70th! Click here.

    Garrison Players Arts Center (GPAC) is a nonprofit, volunteer-based community theatre group dedicated to enriching the cultural life of the area by presenting high-quality theatrical performances geared for family audiences. Established in 1953, the Players encourage people of all ages to enjoy and participate in the many facets of the performing arts, and to help maintain the Garrison Players Arts Center.
