About Us:

The Orion Performing Arts Center (OPAC), a 900- seat venue situated in Mt. Ararat Middle School in Topsham, Maine, serves the general population of Topsham, Bowdoinham, Bowdoin, Harpswell, and the entire midcoast area. It is the largest performance space in the region and was designed with exceptional acoustics.
It is the mission of OPAC to cultivate appreciation, understanding, and participation in the three strands of performing arts--music, drama, and dance--in our schools and communities.  The MSAD#75 School Board encourages the community to use the facility when it is not needed for school-related events. 

For students of all ages, OPAC provides a diverse, meaningful opportunity for student training, growth and success and promotes a community of fluent learners, critical thinkers and creative contributors to our society. The Orion Performing Arts Center provides a cultural beacon in the region, allowing the community at large to experience first-rate live performances, both amateur and professional.

OPAC is a venue open to artists outside of the community. From ballet to ballroom, rap to rhapsody, improvisational comedy to full-fledged theater productions, the Orion Performing Arts Center offers a warm, vibrant and inviting space for artists to share their craft.
