Constructed in 1919 as the Ancram Grange Hall and transformed in 1972 by two ambitious opera lovers, the Ancram Opera House is an intimate theatre with lovely acoustics and a raked stage, in the center of Ancram, New York.

Joan Arnold purchased the building in 2002 and began offering a unique set of programs in it: Alexander Technique workshops and private sessions, yoga classes, theatrical events. In spring 2005, Jim Paul joined the staff as house manager, and Ancram Opera House programs were extended to include literary arts, such as readings and workshops.

The Ancram Opera House offers room to move in every sense. Room to move in body—with Yoga, Dance, Fitness and Wellness classes–and room to move in mind, with interesting, challenging, unique staged events.
