A year to remember

The 2005 edition of the Living Legacy calendar will be a celebration of New Hampshire’s diverse and historically significant cultural and performing arts centers.

The calendar, published by Citizens Bank New Hampshire and the state Department of Cultural Resources, will feature a cover photo of the landmark Papermill Theatre of the North Country Center for the Arts in Lincoln.

All told, the calendars will feature 12 New Hampshire performing arts centers. The remaining 11: The Music Hall in Portsmouth; Rochester Opera House; Peterborough Players; Colonial Theatre, Keene; Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College, Hanover; The Barn Playhouse, New London; Silver Cultural Arts Center at Plymouth State University; Franklin Opera House; The Barnstormers Theatre, Tamworth; Capitol Center for the Arts, Concord; and The Palace Theatre, Manchester.

“From summer-stock to year-round venues supporting educational, community and professional endeavors, our theatres produce and present thousands of events each year and are cause for celebration,” said Van McLeod, commissioner of the Department of Cultural Resources. “We are pleased to bring this calendar to you and hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it. We encourage all residents to buy a ticket, make a donation, see a show, support and celebrate local performing arts activities. By doing so you partake in a tradition as rich and varied as New Hampshire itself.”
