The Venue

The Bitterroot Performing Arts Center

The primary venue used for the Bitterroot Performing Arts Series is the Hamilton Performing Arts Center within Hamilton High School.  Opened in 2001 and owned & operated by the Hamilton School District, this 700-seat state-of-the-art proscenium theater boasts near-perfect sight lines and modern acoustic design in an intimate setting.  The building is located at 327 Fairgrounds Road, between Eastside Highway and Highway 93.  The theater is located in the southeast corner of the school and can be accessed via the building’s south entrance.  Parking is free.

Doors open for ticket purchase and pickup 90 minutes prior to show time, and house doors open 30 minutes prior to show time.  A direct handicap entrance is provided to patrons through double metal doors on the east side of the building, accessed via the service road parallel to Freeze Lane.
