The Forestburgh Theatre Arts Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation which operates the Forestburgh Playhouse.
As specified in the Articles of Incorporation, the mission of the Forestburgh Theatre Arts Center (FTAC) is to provide a venue for the performing arts, specifically live theatre, music, and dance, for the cultural enrichment of the people of Sullivan County.
Since 1992 under the leadership of Producing Director Norman Duttweiler, the Forestburgh Playhouse has continued to offer its own unique version of summer theatre to audiences of Sullivan County. Children’s theatre (YAFF – “Young Audience Festival at Forestburgh”) was instituted in 1998, and has been an integral part of the summer season ever since.
Dubbed the “Miracle of the Forest,” close to 30,000 patrons attend various performances every year, and the growth shows no signs of slowing down. As the Forestburgh Playhouse approaches its 67th season, it continues to thrive and make summer nights special for residents and visitors alike.
