For 24 years the Mainstage and Children’s Theatre companies created magic from the old paper mill building, but in December 2009, the time came for the building to come down and for a new facility, so richly deserved, to take its place.
North Country Center for the Arts has built Jean’s Playhouse, but there is still a mortgage to pay off of nearly 1 Million Dollars along with $350,000 to complete the technical area and pave the parking lot.
Jean’s Playhouse, named for long time NCCA supporter and community leader Jean Hallager, Jean’s Playhouse is the year-round home as the production and administrative center for North Country Center for the Arts. It will carry on the tradition of the Papermill Theatre productions, while expanding the possibilities for year-round theatrical, musical, visual arts, educational programs and community events.
The approximately 12,000 square foot building is fully accessible, insulated and climate controlled. Amenities include comfortable seating, a spacious lobby, and ticketing and concession areas. Visitors will find a conveniently located parking lot with over 90 spaces.
