The Ivoryton Playhouse is located in Ivoryton, a beautiful section of historic Essex, on the banks of the Connecticut River. The Playhouse has been an important part of Connecticut’s cultural landscape for 106 years. It was one of America’s leading summer showplaces, presenting a parade of stars such as Katharine Hepburn, Marlon Brando, Tallulah Bankhead, Betty Grable, Mae West and many, many more.
The theatre presents a year-round program of professional theatre, drawing audiences from New York and New Jersey to Massachusetts. The 280 seat theatre is comfortable and air-conditioned and conveniently located off the highway close to several other desirable tourist destinations including Gillette Castle, The Connecticut River Museum, Essex Steam Train and two major factory outlet shopping centers.
