This is an old theater with wooden seats but you can get a pad for the seat at the theater. Even though it is old it has been nicely renovated and is worth attending a performance. They have a variety of performances each year.

We attended the Suzy Bogguss concert in this historic theater and the sound was beautiful...her voice, the arrangements and the band gave me chills. It was a full house and an engaged audience. I highly recommend this intimate theater.

It's intimate. Orchestra, Balcony, and box seating. If you sit in the front boxes, you really have to angle yourself if the lead singer is not center-stage. Bring a cushion, as the original wooden chairs are, you know, wooden. The box office also has cushions...More

Lyle and ROBERT Keen put on one great performance. You had the feeling that two old friends were sitting on a porch picking and singing and telling stories. Their interaction was a joy to hear and see. One amazing observation was that each applauded the...More

The Stoughton Opera House has lined up a really great schedule of performances for 2016 - 2017, and for reasonable ticket prices. The acoustics are fantastic, and the staff is enthusiastic and kind. Can't lose! There are lots of stairs, but there is an elevator.

Like many smaller towns in America, Stoughton built an opera house during decades ago, and like many of those towns, it fell into disrepair. But Stoughton saved their gem perhaps because it uniquely resides in the same building as the city offices. Upstairs in fact....More
