About

At the Memorial Opera House, the performance begins as soon as you enter. This building’s old-school charm (like the stained-glass windows) is married to top-notch modern amenities (like a brand-new sound system). The Memorial Opera House presents Broadway musicals and plays, national musical acts, live comedy and a lunchtime cabaret series once a month. On the National Register of Historic Places, the handsome Memorial Opera House was built in 1893 by the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) as a memorial to the county's Civil War veterans. In continual use since then, the Opera House has hosted such notable performers as conductor John Phillip Sousa and the Marx Brothers. The most recent renovation of this historic building began in 1993 and was completed in the spring of 1998. The architects tried to make the renovation as historically accurate as possible, and added design elements that were common during the 1890s. Free guided tours are offered by appointment and are well worth the effort. Be sure to check their program schedule to see what productions are showing during your visit to the region.
