It would be a gross understatement to say that this past year has been an unusual one. Words like unprecedented, unparalleled, and unrivaled spring to mind. But one thing that has not wavered in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic is the generous support of donors like yourself.

Your donations have enabled us to begin to recover from our shutdown period, and in turn the Opera House has begun to bring back the entertainment that we all missed during the dark days of the pandemic. While we’re not out of the woods yet, our COVID-19 mitigation policies have enabled us to resume our mission of entertaining the people from in and around Mineral Point.

We’re able to bring you quality entertainment like this because of one simple reason: your continued, enthusiastic support. Whether it’s purchasing tickets to see a favorite entertainer, a donation of your hard-earned money, a membership in Friends of the MPOH, or volunteering to help run our new and improved concessions stand, every little bit helps keep our community theatre running strong. Your support is the fuel that fires our engine, and it simply will not run on an empty tank.

To be certain, there are many challenges that await the Opera House as we continue our mission of being A Theatre For All The People. We are working hard to rebuild our marquee in a manner that respects and honors the city’s preservationist heritage. Ongoing maintenance and upkeep in the 100-plus-year-old theatre is a constant need that cannot be ignored. Finally, we hope to hire our first-ever full-time Executive Director to help guide us into our next phase of growth.

These are ambitious goals, the pursuit of which will require hours of work and dedication. But these are worthy goals. As Sir Laurence Olivier once said, “I believe that in a great city, or even in a small city or a village, a great theatre is the outward and visible sign of an inward and probable culture.” Our theatre is and always has been our great gathering place, where we meet, laugh, dance, and cry together. We thank you for your years of unfailing support, and we hope to see you at the Opera House soon.

Warmest regards,

Bill Webb
President, Board of Directors
Mineral Point Opera House
