WHO WE ARE

The Fairfield Theatre Company is a nonprofit center for the arts and culture located in the heart of downtown Fairfield, Connecticut. We bring together a community of musicians, actors, artists, writers, fans, and supporters who are dedicated to the simple premise that the broadest spectrum of live entertainment and cultural exchange is essential to the vitality of our society.

 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to connect and enrich our community through the transforming power of the arts. We believe that our quality of life is richly influenced by opportunities to get out and come together in public places to enjoy art, music, theatre, film, arts education and all manner of creative and intellectual discourse, and to participate in these activities to the fullest. To that end, we work diligently to establish and sustain venues for the presentation of concerts, plays, films, visual arts, and arts education. We seek to appeal to the most diverse audience possible, as often as we possibly can. We endeavor to strengthen our community and nurture, enrich, and enlighten the lives of those we touch. Our hope is to make our world a better place one great performance at a time.

 

OUR HISTORY

Founded by FTC’s former Executive Director, Miles Marek, from our first season of plays in 2001 on the campus of Fairfield University, to the opening of StageOne in downtown Fairfield in 2004, to a string of highly-acclaimed performances by major artists at the revitalized Klein Auditorium in Bridgeport, FTC has evolved into one of the region’s most energetic and productive performing arts centers. Today we present over 250 concerts, plays, films, art shows, children’s workshops, and other arts-related productions to over 40,000 patrons each year.

Amazing venue! This theatre is pretty small and has a very intimate vibe. It is very clean and nice. There is also an amazing selection of beer. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic venue. The Machine (Pink Floyd cover band) had a so so first set that lasted just under an hour followed by a 35 minute break. I was ready to leave when they came back and played a great second set for an hour. Staff and facilities at FTC were perfect. The Machine needs to work on their showmanship.

I really enjoyed this venue when I attended the Collie Buddz Good Life tour. Open floor in front of the stage on main level, the upstairs (with another bar) has hightop tables. All the employees at The Warehouse were super friendly and accommodating!
