Haskell Opera House FAQs


Where is the Haskell Opera House located?

The Haskell Free Library and Opera House is situated directly on the Canada-U.S. border in Stanstead, Quebec and Derby Line, Vermont. The opera house (theater) is located on the top level. 

The address is 93 Caswell Ave., Derby Line or 1 Church St. Stanstead. You can access the building from either country. 

Do I need a passport?

No. American audience members can park on the U.S. side and walk directly into the building.  Canadian audience members should park on the Canadian side and walk to the opera house on the sidewalk. After the performance, they must return to Canada the same way. 

Is there parking?

For those coming to the theater from the American side, there is parking at the side of the building off Caswell Avenue. (Please note that for May 10-12 performances, the parking lot is unavailable due to poor conditions.) Canadian patrons can park on Church Street or at one of the nearby municipal parking lots. 

Is the opera house handicap-accessible?

 Yes. There is an elevator to the box office level and the auditorium and balcony levels.  

Can I get tickets at the box office?

Yes. The box office is open one hour before curtain.
