About Schoolhouse Theater

The mission of the Schoolhouse Theater is to enhance the life of the community through live, professional, regional, theater. Our goal is to support and promote the theatrical arts, to encourage actors, directors and playwrights, as well as to support and promote other art forms. This is a wide umbrella, enabling us to create opportunities for artists to challenge themselves and grow, and to enrich the lives of student interns, senior volunteers, and audience members. All of our theater programming, including main stage productions, workshops, classes, and staged readings, introduces our patrons to award-winning playwrights as well as emerging talented voices. Our dedication to professional, earnest and creative achievement engenders pride and respect in the lives of all participants, and helps audiences and the community to develop an appreciation for and enjoyment of theater and the arts.

The Schoolhouse Theater, a nonprofit organization, is a venerable cultural center devoted to professional theater, live music, and entertainment at the highest possible standard. Our galleries host local artists, sculptors, and photographers from all over the county. We have a gift shop, a 99 seat theater, an art gallery and classrooms. We rent our space for events, weddings and seminars. 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. Through classes for children, live theater, live music, comedy, slam poetry and story telling we have sought to be a landmark home for all of the arts in Westchester County. ​ 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 five productions to Off-Broadway: Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, Ingmar Bergman’s Nora, S.N. Behrman’s Biography, Elaine Del Valle’s Brownsville Bred and The Enlightenment of Mr. Mole.
