Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center

Located on the campus of Fryeburg Academy, the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center is home to a variety of professional and student performances throughout the year. Since opening its doors in January 2009, the “LHE/PAC” has offered a state-of-the-art performance space for the Mount Washington Valley. From hosting renowned touring performers including Peter Yarrow, NRBQ, and comedian Bob Marley, to projecting live video streams of the Metropolitan Opera’s Emmy and Peabody award-winning “Live In HD” series, the LHE/PAC has become a cultural heartbeat of northern New England.

  • Met Opera Live in HD: The Exterminating Angel

    Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera. Estimated run time - 2 hrs 30 mins. Please note there will not be a catered lunch before the opera, but we will have coffee and light snacks available during intermission. Joe De Vito will be hosting his Opera Lecture Series on Thursday, November 16th at 3 pm.

  • MAINELAND: A Film by Miao Wang

    Filmed over three years in China and the U.S., MAINELAND is a multi-layered coming-of-age tale that follows two affluent and cosmopolitan teenagers as they settle into a boarding school at Fryeburg Academy. Part of the enormous wave of "parachute students" from China enrolling in U.S. private schools, bubbly, fun-loving Stella and introspective Harry come seeking a Western-style education, escape from the Chinese college entrance exam, and the promise of a Hollywood-style U.S. high school experience. As Stella and Harry’s fuzzy visions of the American dream slowly gain more clarity, they ruminate on their experiences of alienation, culture clash, and personal identity, sharing new understandings and poignant discourses on home and country.
