WATERVILLE OPERA HOUSE ASSOCIATION

The Waterville Opera House has been Central Maine's cultural center since 1902, treating audiences of all ages to the magic of the performing arts.  Our 810-seat venue has been host to theatrical productions, ballet performances, concerts, vaudeville and comedy acts, touring shows, as well as a variety of community celebrations and special events.

Each year the Opera House draws 30,000 patrons, reaches 4,000 students through its education performances, and features 250 youths in their theater camps and productions.  With its recent $4.5 million renovation, the Opera House will extend its tenure as the destination for the arts in Maine for another century.
