With of help from the community and sponsors, they were able to put on shows throughout summers ever since. The feedback received from people who come to the shows, the performers, and the local community kept them motivated for 25 years.
In late 2019 the theater was purchased by Jim & Dorothy with plans to continue live theater as well as expand its use throughout the year. Their focus will be about serving as a community and visitor resource for family activities and private events while maintaining the historical beauty of the building.
It is our mission to make use of the Historical Opera Theater to serve the people of Glenns Ferry and surrounding communities through a variety of community activities, performing arts and private events. It is an equally important mission to restore and preserve the historical beauty of the theater as closely as possible to its original state.
