Happy Birthday, dear Opera House…!

This year the Historic Bangor Opera House turns 100!  We are embarking on a very special fundraising project that will raise money to support the care of our beloved home for the next 100 years. We have made so many improvements since we took ownership in 1997, such as restoring the building façade and marquee, renovating the lobby, and replacing the seats in the auditorium. Looking to the future, we’d like to keep the improvements going, but we can’t do it without you!  Our list of wants for the Opera House includes:

  • renovating the bathrooms
  • buying a curtain for the stage, also known as a “Grand Rag”
  • putting a sign on the building that denotes the Opera House
  • improving our rehearsal room
  • improving our sound system
  • renovating our administrative offices
  • …and so much more!

Please help us continue to thrive and consider a gift today!
