Arts, Entertainment and Family Fun

Blackfriars Theatre is a mid-sized professional theatre that has entertained audiences for more than 50 years in downtown Rochester, New York. Our mission has been to provide the best possible showcase for actors and actresses, theater artists and technicians who have chosen to make Rochester their home. Many of our family have moved on to acting and technical roles in regional theatre, Broadway, movies and television – a testament to the training Blackfriars provides.

Blackfriars Theatre produces 6 plays each year (5 per season, 1 special summer show). Our theatrical season starts each fall and runs through May. Our committed group of performers, technicians and volunteers are proud to bring live entertainment in the form of dramatic and musical productions to our local community in western New York.

The Finger Lake’s premier professional theater! Presenting six shows in 12 weeks during our summer season, as well as concerts, events and educational programs throughout the year. Located in scenic Naples, NY in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country, the Bristol Valley Theater is the perfect summertime theatrical escape.

Popular sketch-comedy troupe EstroFest performs a comical palette of hilarious sketches, outrageous video vignettes, and clever musical numbers.

The ladies of EstroFest have been busy having babies and such, so the troupe is currently on hiatus. However, EstroFest plans to be back, making you laugh, in Winter 2010. Thanks for checking in on us!
