Briggs Opera House
The response to this has been exciting and confirming. Northern Stage has been gracious in helping us get ready for it. I think you will enjoy the preliminary presentations and then the comments to follow will be interesting. CATV is documenting it so we can all look back and reflect.
The panel will consist of Hilde Ojibway – Interim Director of Vital Communities, Peter Gregory, ED of Two River RPC and Bente Torjusen of AVA so a broad view of our Upper valley Community will “set the stage” for us.
On behalf of the Briggs Family we will be pleased to see you in the audience!

Thirty Years Later - What Will Become of It?
The departure of Northern Stage for its beautiful new Barrette Arts Center will leave the Briggs Opera House available for other uses supportive of the Upper Valley Community. Since the new era resulting in the "Creative Economy" was launched in this very space thirty years ago now, many wonderful things have happened off the spirit of that moment. The entire Upper Valley community has contributed in time, treasure and talent to all these advancements . Taking this space into the future ought to have input from the citizens involved with and impacted by the decisions to be made this year.
