ON THE STAGE
WHO WE ARE
Hole in the Wall Theater has been a staple of the New Britain arts community for over 50 years. Through the hundreds of shows we’ve produced, our mission has always been to make theater accessible to everyone. Every one of our Main Stage productions includes a “Pay What You Can Night” to give all of our patrons the opportunity to experience the joy of live theater, regardless of their circumstances.
Hole in the Wall is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization. Every one of our members – from our actors, to our directors, to our tech, maintenance, and administrative team – are volunteers. We are always seeking new helping hands to join in our efforts to produce quality theater for the community at large. Please check our auditions page and our volunteer page for more information on how you can get involved, or learn more about our history and past productions to see what you can expect here at Hole in the Wall!

Hole in the Wall Theater’s mission is to make theater accessible to everyone. As such, accessibility to our shows is one of our highest priorities. Below is some information to answer some common questions about our facilities.
Zero-Step Entry: Hole in the Wall Theater is a L-style Black Box theater, meaning the seats begin at the stage level and rise graduallyout. As such our lobby and theater are fully accessible to patrons.
Wheelchair Seating: Hole in the Wall Theater has wheelchair accessible reserved seating, directly near the entrance to the stage. Patrons who may need this seating may remain in their wheelchair at these spaces. As well the front row as a small 6″ step up that is prioritized for limited mobility patrons. Please note any seating requirements you may have in your ticket purchase, or contact us at the box office
Accessibility Parking: While Hole in the Wall Theater does not have a patron parking area (We instead suggest looking at the parking information above!), our production team lot located at 21 Walnut St has limited accessibility parking. If you need assistance entering the theater from the street, please contact us if we can provide additional accommodation
Large Room Stalls: Each of our lobby bathrooms has accessible bathrooms.
Content Warnings: In our commitment to making theater accessible for everyone, we advise all of our artistic teams to limit any technical effects that may make the show inaccessible for patrons. For any shows that contain technical elements that may hinder the experience of guests such as flashing lights / strobes, sudden loud noises or other aspects that could interfere with guest safety, notices will be placed at theater door and box office. If you have questions about the content of show do not hesitate to ask our box office staff.
We are continuing to improve our facility’s accessibility over time. If you have any other questions about our space accessibility do not hesitate to reach out to our box office team.
