We offer a year-round schedule of professional theatre, music, film, dance, educational programs, community events, and more. Opera House Arts’ programs serve all of Hancock County’s winter and summer residents and visitors, with a special emphasis on the residents of Deer Isle and the Blue Hill peninsula.
