Tibbits Summer Theatre
Tibbits has developed an outstanding reputation for its professional summer theatre seasons, first started in 1964. USA Today called it one of “10 great places to see the lights way off Broadway.” For families, Tibbits offers Popcorn Theatre, classic stories presented by the professional resident company or magic shows, touring artists or a classic cartoon cavalcade on Friday and Saturday mornings.
