Uutilizing local artists and staff from Fairfield County, Fairfield Center Stage is a community theater group that says its inspired by the concept of environmental theater, and has dedicated its inaugural seasons of shows to putting Fairfield “center stage,” by highlighting several of the town’s venues, as well as producing a free annual “musical in concert” outdoors in downtown Fairfield in hopes that it will become a town-wide tradition at the start of summer.
