Welcome to Parish Players, an incorporated not-for-profit membership theater group based at the Eclipse Grange Theatre in Thetford Hill, Vermont. We are a community theater staffed and run by volunteers. Come join us. We welcome your participation, whether as an audience member, on the stage or behind-the-scenes (or all three!). We have lots to offer.

Windows and Drainage

Parish Players is extremely blessed to own its theater - the historic Eclipse Grange. Between 1998 and 2002, a major renovation made many improvements to the building. Since then, we have continued to maintain and improve our theater. We have replaced old, leaky windows with energy efficient ones in the green room and dressing room. We hope to do the same in the library and costume loft. Last summer we scraped and painted the front.

This summer, thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation, we have remedied the drainage problem which caused water to collect in the cellar. We will next solve the ice build-up on the porch roof which causes leaking into the foyer. Many thanks go to the Byrne Foundation for their generous contribution and to the many members who have labored and will, hopefully, continue to give loving care to our theater.
