Who We Are

Connecticut Heritage Productions has been creating performance art for over three decades in Middletown, CT. We are proud of the work we do – probing, intelligent and touching work. Most of the shows we choose to produce, explore the human condition and excite dialog around a wide range of issues in our culture and time. Our future direction will be building an educational framework for artists, developmental workshops for new plays and experimentation with new, interactive productions.
