Oakdale Theatre

95 South Turnpike Road, Wallingford

Built on an alfalfa field in 1954 by original founder Ben Segal, the original Oakdale was part of the “theatre-in-the-round” craze that saw many circular stages open in various parts of the Northeast. A family owned business for decades, it began primarily as a summer stock venue, hosting many of the musicals of the day: ‘Kiss Me Kate’, ‘South Pacific’, ‘Oklahoma’ to mention a few, with many of Broadways brightest stars like John Raitt, Danny Kaye, James Garner and Ethel Merman. In the 60s, Oakdale evolved into a summer concert venue where the likes of Harry Belafonte, Paul Anka, Steve & Eydie, Tom Jones, and more played to the open air crowds every summer, sometimes for 2 weeks at a time! The landscape changed in the late 60s and Oakdale rocked and rolled with Cream, The Who, The Doors and even Led Zeppelin, all playing live on the spinning stage.
