Upper Valley's Best Listening Room!

This is the best place to see a band. The intimate setting, great lighting and superb acoustics allow you to really enjoy a concert.

This used to be the home of Northern Stage, one of the regional professional theater organizations. Now, Briggs hosts a variety of different shows. The good news: 90% of the seats are excellent and there is a free parking lot across the street. The bad news: the staircase is long and looks like an Escher painting. I'm told that there... More

Another great season. The actors, sets, and music make for an enjoyable evening. We look forward to next season in the new theater.

The Briggs is the name of the theater--intimate, good acoustics--not of the theater company (Northern Stage), which plans soon to move around the block to new facilities. As an exacting critic, I am not quite the best person to offer a recommendation, I have seen excellent productions, a few that were very disappointing, and many in between. I wish Northern... More

Love the repertory theater here, with Northern Stage in residence! It often attracts well-known Equity actors from NYC theater, as well as from popular TV series. It is a comfortable theater, with seats almost on three sides of the stage--I always prefer the seats to one side. For one performance, I could have almost touched the narrator--this was in a...

Briggs Opera House has a great professional theatre group. They bring a lot of actors up from NYC and always put on an interesting show. It's a small stage and you are part of the experience-sometimes placing seating right on the stage. They have earned a great reputation for being professional and creative with a very small area to work... More

Have been a season ticket holder since 2001. Professional productions in an intimate atmosphere. Many Equity players in cast. Productions are highly professional. If you would like to see the show, I would recommend without reservation that you go.

Briggs Opera House in White River Junction is the home of Northern Stage. This local theater company brings professional quality theater to the Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont. This is NOT 'community theater'. It's well-crafted, well staged contemporary theater in a thrust-stage venue which engages its audience. Check out their offerings and prepare for a lovely event.

Very impressed by the quality of the shows they put on. I try and make it to a couple a year and always wish I had the time for more. I was Importance of Being Ernest and Peter Pan. Both exceptional! Glad to see this year they are doing a Christmas Show!
