The Opera House Players "OHP" continue to work hard to keep the historic Elkader Opera House a great venue for quality entertainment. As a 501(3)c non-profit organization the OHP contributed both in money and volunteer hours to the renovation of this structure. We also work to update all technical aspects of lighting, sound, and staging. We fund these projects to assure that our productions, and other great events continue to have a local venue. We have ambitious plans for future musical productions, comedy productions, musical entertainers, family and holiday entertainment, and various variety shows. The OHP continues in their dedication to upgrade the theater in order to entice more performers to the Elkader Opera House stage.
Your continued response and support to our annual membership drive is extremely appreciated. Your gracious support not only assists us in maintaining the physical beauty of this historic structure, but also allows us to keep our ticket prices low, so more of the public can enjoy all that this cultural haven has to offer! You can help us, as we begin our second 50 years, keep bringing local entertainment and theater by becoming a supporting member of the OHP. You can help even more by considering the Opera House Players when planning your estate.
Your tax deductible gift of $25 or more automatically puts your name on a special mailing/email list for the 2017-2018 season and qualifies you for a membership. This level of donation will make you eligible for special deals and incentives offered by the OHP, as well as keep the OHP growing and providing even more fantastic theater experiences for our area.
As a thank you to those who become Members (individuals) or Patrons (businesses) at $25 or more, you will be offered the option of early ticket purchasing to OHP productions, to ensure that you can get the seats you want for the upcoming shows. You will be notified approximately two weeks prior to when tickets go on sale to the general public. Only Members and Patrons will be able to purchase tickets during that time.
The Elkader Opera House continues to successfully host both big name and local performers. If you have a performer or type of performance you would like to see on stage, please let us know! We'll pass that information on to the Theater Board for consideration.
