The Littleton Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to showcase the Littleton Opera House as its Featured Member of the month. Standing tall and proud, the Opera House is a familiar staple to area residents.
Though it sat idle for many years, you would never know it by the numerous events that have been hosted over the last few years. Large or small, the Opera House is suitable for almost anything. Along with plays and concerts, the Opera House hosts conferences, birthday parties, meetings, and even has several weddings on the horizon.
The Chamber sat down with Opera House Manager, Sue Pilotte, to talk about services they provide to the community.
“The last half of 2017, we were booked 138 days out of 206 available booking dates,” Sue says. “During one weekend in November, we had a very successful two-day NH Council for the Arts Conference, a concert in the Grand Hall, and meetings taking place in the Tower Room. All of this increased activity, from one weekend alone, brought over 140 people into the Opera House. This is just one example of the activities taking place at the Opera House. These events not only benefit the taxpayers, but also increases the number of visitors to our beautiful town.”
To assist with the increase in bookings and workload, Jennifer Poulton was recently hired as an administrative assistant to work with Sue on a part-time basis. Sue has worked diligently, along with the Opera House commissioners and the Town Manager, to increase the usage of the Opera House.
“We have a solid commitment to the success of the Opera House. Think of the Opera House when you are planning your next fundraiser, private party, concert, meeting, or conference. Any occasion-we can do it all!”
Beware, the increase in bookings also means that space fills up quickly! “We want to open the Opera House to everyone, but we are in demand now,” she explains. “Book early!”
If the date you’re interested in isn’t available, Sue is happy to work with you on alternative dates.
“I am especially grateful, and appreciative of the many positive comments from our community members relating to the operation, and future of the historic and proud Littleton Opera House,” she says. “Most of all, thank you to our community members, contributors, volunteer supporters, community service students, and Opera House fans, who like me, see a great future for the Littleton Opera House. We couldn’t do it without you!”
