LACONIA — The Lakes Region Tourism Association awarded the annual Tourism Award to the Winnipesaukee Playhouse at the association's annual meeting held October 2 at The NASWA Resort's Blue Bistro in Laconia.
The Annual Tourism Award was established to recognize an individual or business that has made a difference during the past year to bring visitors into the Lakes Region and Central New Hampshire. Examples include the enhancement of an event or attraction, development of an event or attraction, outstanding marketing/promotion of a related achievement that had an economic impact by bringing visitors to the area.
The Winnipesaukee Playhouse, established by Bryan and Johanna Halperin and Neil and Lesley Pankhurst, has contributed greatly to the performing arts culture of the Lakes Region since their opening in 2004. In addition to putting on year-round professional productions, the Playhouse also hosts community and children's theatre programs.
In 2013, the Winnipesaukee Playhouse opened its newly remodeled 194-seat theatre at the former Annalee factory in Meredith. This doubles the amount of people their original theatre could hold, as their previous theatre in Weirs Beach only had 84 seats.
