The tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a man wrongly accused of murder is brought to theatrical life.

Amid religious intolerance, political injustice, and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all the odds. With a book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a rousing, colorful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For a New WorldThe Last Five YearsBridges of Madison County), Parade is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America's history.

Annual Meeting

Opera House Players 2017 Annual Meeting 

During the meeting we get a chance to socialize, reminisce, have a bite to eat, and make some important decisions for the coming year. Please feel free (but not obligated) to bring munchies or a dessert to share! 

The agenda for this meeting will include helping to create the list of potential shows for the 2018/2019 (In honor of our 50th anniversary November 2018 we have decided to reprise our first SMP musical, directed by the original director ) and electing a Board of Directors to serve during 2018. You must be a paid-up member to vote. If you are not yet a member, you will be able to join at the meeting.

Anyone (actors, directors, technical crew members, audience members, OHP supporters etc.) can suggest a show for us to consider during the meeting. At this time we not considering shows we have already done at the Opera House. Please consider shows that will appeal to local directors, performers, and our audiences. Think about the technical demands of the shows and how it can be presented in our theater, given our space constraints, when making suggestions.

Please consider becoming a member of The Opera House Players! The Players are always in need of people with a variety of skills to assist us in all aspects of theater production.

At the annual meeting, a list of “suggested” shows is presented on a ballot to the members present. (Please send your suggestions to me at by noon Oct 5th) During the meeting we will discuss the suggested shows and anyone present can share thoughts on why a show should be produced by OHP. Then each member selects their top five choices by numbering them from "1" to "5". The number "5" indicates your top choice, "4" your second choice, and so on. The votes are tallied, and the top 12 shows are submitted to the Board. The Board then selects four shows for the next season during upcoming monthly board meetings. All members are welcome to attend monthly board meetings.
