Welcome to River Theater Company of Charlestown, NH!

RTC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community theater group that offers theater opportunities in production and education to communities in southwestern New Hampshire and southeastern Vermont. Founded in 2004, RTC offers numerous productions, classes and workshops to youth and adults, from original works to Shakespeare.

RTC produces a variety of plays:  an annual murder mystery dinner theater, family productions, and staged readings. This past fall, October 2012, the upstairs theater was reopened for the first time on over 40 years with Thornton Wilder's American classic Our Town.

The RTC, Charlestown Rotary Club, and individual donors continue to sponsor renovations to the upstairs theater of the Old Town Hall on Summer Street, hoping to bring our beautiful little theater back to life. If you would like to contribute to the preservation of this historic building please consider a donation.

We hope you can join us as we continue to bring quality live theater entertainment to the area.

Calendar of Events

The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance created Seven to Save in 2006 to focus attention and resources on significant historic properties in New Hampshire that are threatened by neglect, deterioration, insufficient funds, inappropriate development, and/or insensitive public policy.

Historic resources are eligible for the program if they are over 50 years old and are significant representations of the state's heritage. Besides historical or architectural significance, criteria for Seven to Save also include severity of the current threat to the property and the extent to which the listing will make a difference in preserving or protecting it.

The Town Hall was listed as one of 2012's Seven to Save by the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance.
