The pride of Derby Line, Vermont, and Stanstead, Quebec, the Haskell Opera House is a remarkable institution that has attracted visitors from around the world for the past 109 years. However, it is a Rental Facility Only. Many are unaware of this caveat.

The pride of Derby Line, Vermont, and Stanstead, Quebec, the Haskell Opera House is a remarkable institution that has attracted visitors from around the world for the past 109 years. However, it is a Rental Facility Only. Many are unaware of this caveat. According to the original charter, dated 1908, it was to be “forever managed and used for the support and maintenance” of the library. While the Opera House is the subject of an ongoing fascination on the part of the media and has been featured on network news around the world ― in publications such as Life Magazine, Canadian Geographic, the New York Times, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and used in the A&E Film Barnum ― the venue struggles to stay financially viable. While a cavalcade of talented performers like Paula Poundstone, Gregory Douglass, Charlie McCoy, and Stuart McLean graced the stage last season, creativity in generating income is not limited to performance rentals. The facility is available for meetings, conventions, public forums, talent shows, fashions shows, and weddings. Patrons can also support the Opera House by attending performances, purchasing the CD Haskellectibles, Adopt-a-Theatre-Seat, or take an historic tour. This season the Haskell will once again host the Vermont International Film Festival in addition to the myriad of quality entertainment. Visit the website for the 2013 lineup.
