The Theater

Perhaps one of the most remarkable - - and unexpected - - features of the Tillotson Center is the Kaufmann Theater which seats 171. Situated on the Center's second floor, the theater offers both orchestra and balcony seating and is perfect for live stage productions, movies, concerts, guest speakers, school plays, and community meetings.

And because it has a large screen and excellent sound system, it is also perfect for motion pictures and documentaries.  For example , thanks to a generous grant from New Hampshire Electric Co-op, the Tillotson Center is offering a series of family friendly movies throughout 2017.  The goal is to provide an opportunity for families to get out and share an experience that is both fun and affordable. 

Among the stalwarts of the Tillotson Center's theater are the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts (GNWCA) and the Carriage Lane Players.  The GNWCA is dedicated to bringing the best live concerts to the area.  Its offerings are extraordinary and range from Jazz to Celtic to Classical and more.  Another stalwart is the Carriage Lane Players, a local acting troupe who pack the house with their comedies, dramas, and murder mysteries.  These two groups make the theater rock!
