Pentangle Arts is a nonprofit dedicated to providing
high quality, affordable arts programming,
including movies, theater, youth enrichment and concerts.
Founded in 1974, Pentangle Arts (formerly Pentangle Arts Council) has fostered artistic growth by bringing cultural experiences to the Woodstock, Pomfret, Barnard, Reading and Bridgewater communities. We are dedicated to providing high quality, affordable arts programming that inspires, educates, and entertains audiences of all ages.
Pentangle Arts is busy all year, with events and productions attended by 5,000 residents in our community, and another 7,000 visitors who come to take advantage of our unique programs.
Our Arts in Education Program, one of the oldest in Vermont, enriches the lives of thousands of students of all ages through performances, artist residencies, camps and after school programs.
At Pentangle, we strive to enrich our community by cultivating an appreciation of the arts through performances by world class musicians, from jazz to classical music, from all over the world.
Live theatrical productions have included Fiddler on the Roof, CATS, The Wizard of Oz, The Rocky Horror Show, Cabaret and Hair.
We are also a very popular first-run movie theater. Feature films, documentaries and classic films fill the Town Hall Theatre weekly, on the biggest screen and best sound system in the region.
Pentangle Arts is an integral partner in community-wide cultural events such as Woodstock’s Wassail Weekend, Interplay Jazz’s Summer Intensive, and The Flurry: Woodstock Snow Sculpture Festival.
