WELCOME to Chestnut Street Playhouse!

The Board of Directors is currently working to renew and revamp our mission initiatives to create the spirit of community that we want Chestnut Street Playhouse to exhibit. This effort includes creating space and opportunity for more diversity, equity and inclusion in our programming, on our Board, in our audience, on our stage, within our creative teams and for our volunteers. There will be much more to come in the months - and years - ahead, and we look forward to the journey to create the community we dream of being.

New works by the following playwrights 

have been chosen:

The plays will be presented as staged readings. After each play, there will be a brief "talkback" with the playwright, director, and actors. Concessions will be available. The plays will be performed over the course of two days. You're welcome (and encouraged!) to join us for as many as you'd like. All proceeds for this special two-day event will benefit Chestnut Street Playhouse. For more information about the schedule and ticket prices, click HERE. Please note, "Scrambled Stories" by Sophia Foss, is the only play recommended for all ages. The rest of the plays are recommended for audience members age 16 and above for language and content. 



If you have any questions, please contact us.

We look forward to the opportunity to celebrate local talent once again!
