Weston Playhouse was launched in a renovated church in 1937. Lloyd Bridges was the leading man in the first performance of that first season. A 1962 fire destroyed the original facility, but the current Greek Revival facility promptly replaced it. The current facility has had to deal with floods in the 1970s and 2011, but it has survived all obstacles so far.
A cafe below the small theater serves dinner before the show and offers a cabaret after the show. The West River flows over a dam next to a grist mill before passing behind the theater.
