In the heart of downtown Norwich, CT, Chestnut Street Playhouse is the place to be for entertainment, education and a celebration of the performing arts.
Originally built in 1968 on the campus of Annhurst College, the Loos Center for the Arts was acquired by The Woodstock Academy with the purchase of South Campus in 2017. The Loos Center for the Arts includes a 1,000 seat theater, theGallery, lecture hall, recording studio, and several classrooms.
The Community School of the Arts (CSA) has history of providing community based programs for over 35 years. In 2014 the University of Connecticut partnered with the Town of Mansfield, ultimately transferring administration of the program. The Community School of the Arts currently offers individual and group music lessons/ensembles, Suzuki guitar and violin classes, visual arts programs for children and adults, visual arts summer camps for children, and the annual community Nutcracker production! In addition to programs with the CSA, the Mansfield Parks and Recreation department offers introductory dance classes for children and adults!
The CSA is proud to be opening a new facility “Lenard Hall” next fall at the intersection of Rtes. 275 and 32 in Storrs/Mansfield, CT.
