ABOUT WESTON FRIENDLY SOCIETY
The Weston Friendly Society of the Performing Arts, Inc. is the second oldest theatre group in the United States, and has a rich history of putting on quality musicals for enthusiastic audiences from all over the state. The Friendly Society originated as a forum for group readings of classic books, poetry and the Bible in a small theatre on the estate of Mr. Horace Sears.
The organization eventually evolved into cabaret-style performances in our beloved Weston Town Hall, a tradition we keep even today. Historically, Society membership was limited to only Weston residents connected with the First Parish Unitarian Church. Today our membership is non-sectarian, and is open to all residents of metropolitan Boston and beyond.
Despite changes in membership since 1885, the original purpose of The Friendly Society has been steadfastly maintained:
“The Friendly Society is a self-supporting, non-profit performing arts organization which promotes community service and fellowship through support of local charitable causes.”
The Weston Friendly Society’s mission and goals are as timely now as they were in the late 1800s. Such community spirit has been exemplified by the teamwork of our dedicated casts, production staffs, crews and committees, as well as our tradition of giving to various non-profit agencies and scholarship funds. As the second oldest community theater in the country, our mission continues to be to promote theater, theater education, and local talent to surrounding communities and to provide community service and fellowship through support of local charitable sources.
We thank you, our audience, for your generous support and we invite you to join The Friendly Society. Our productions require a tremendous amount of behind-the-scenes assistance and we hope you'll consider assisting with our charitable fundraising endeavors by joining Friends of Friendly, through sponsorship, or by volunteering to building and painting sets, sewing costumes, or ushering.
