Stiltskin is a new and imaginative take on the classic Grimm’s fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin. Adventure to a far away kingdom torn by magic, fear, and lies where a boy spurned by his father, and a girl who refuses to accept the status quo, are trying to find their way. Stiltskin leads us on an exploration of the true nature of love, honesty, and redemption.

The HW Community House is a private, non-profit organization which sponsors cultural, social, educational and recreational programs.

Nowadays, offerings include a variety of family, child and adult programs, activities for seniors, community events and space for gatherings of all types.
The Community House has hosted activities for all ages for more than 90 years, while serving citizens of Hamilton and Wenham. Many residents have fond memories of the Friday Night Movies, scout meetings, bowling, dances and more at the Community House.
At present we are host to many programs and activities for families and children, programs for Adults and Seniors, our Special Friends and the many community organizations who meet here regularly.
