Johnson Hall located in Gardiner, Maine is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. The first floor has been recently renovated into an accessible 117-seat performance space, where Johnson Hall presents arts programs for all ages, all year round live professional music, theater and dance performances; theater and art camps for children; and workshops and classes for children and adults. The theater also collaborates with other community organizations to bring arts and theater programs to children and to present a summer festival, outdoor concerts and movies; and provides space for community classes, groups, rehearsals, and meetings. Johnson Hall’s upper floors await restoration, and the community is engaged in a planning process to return the Hall to its full glory—a 360-seat theater and conference center, which will provide cultural enrichment and boost the regional economy.
