Houlton Community Arts Center Auditorium at Houlton High School is open for business! Thanks to the generosity of our community, a complete renovation of the auditorium and audience entry area was finished in the fall of 2009.

Our facility features:

  • 600 flexible seating capacity including balcony, box seats, and a combination of fixed/removable/loose seating.
  • Large stage area with multiple curtain settings to customize your staging needs.
  • Control booth with ETC lighting controls, Yamaha sound board and Assisted Hearing system.
  • Large entrance area with ticket kiosk and cafeteria area for vending needs.

Houlton Community Arts Center Council continues to raise funds for an expansion of visual and performing arts space that will allow for complete housing of music, theater, dance, and art at Houlton High School for all to use and enjoy. Please find more information about how you can help on the pages of this website.

Our Mission

The Houlton Community Arts Center Council seeks to raise funds to expand and renovate the existing music facilities of Houlton High School in order to establish a performing and visual arts facility that will better serve the needs of our students and the citizens of the Southern Aroostook area.

Expanded Vision

To enhance the quality of life for the community through arts; to network, cooperate, foster creative economy and cultural climate to promote learning, cultivate opportunities, provide access and inspire artistic development to celebrate artistic values in everyday life.

Regional Creative Council

The Regional Creative Council (RCC) was recently formed to enhance the artistic, cultural, educational and economic climate within our entire tri-county region of Southern Aroostook, Northern Penobscot and Northern Washington Counties.  The RCC is engaging artisans, government representatives and community advocates to evaluate the cultural needs of our tri-county region.  While the RCC was initiated by the Houlton Community Arts Center Council, Southern Aroostook Cultural Arts Project, Town of Houlton Community Development Department, Cary Library and the Houlton Higher Education Center, our regional meetings have included representatives from through the entire geographical area.
