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.

They have performed at nationally recognized venues such as Uncle Calvin’s in Dallas, Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, and the Bluebird Café in Nashville.
