I attended my second concert at this venue on February 5th, 2011. It was a concert by John McCutcheon.

This is a fine venue with good acoustics, seating and view of the stage. The old opera house has been lovingly restored and I look forward to attending more events there in the
future.

The calendar of events lists many well known performers from a variety of musical tastes.

It was well worth the drive from Madison, Wisconsin. I encourage everyone to attend events at the Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake, Wisconsin.

Thrasher Opera House is a gift to our community that keeps on giving. My family has benefited from a wide array of experiences in a beautiful setting. We've heard George Winston perform during the Christmas holiday season. We have had the pleasure of listening to numerous other talent musicians.

We've attended Missoula Children's Theater performances when our daughter was very small and watched her blossom as an actor in 8 productions put on by Missoula Children's Theater over the last 6 years. Our independent small business believes this is such an amazing opportunity for local children that we have begun sponsoring this program whenever possible.

Just this month we've gone to Thrasher Opera House twice for very diverse evenings: a children's performance of the Frog Prince through MCT and a screening of an independent film, Feed the Fish, which was made in Wisconsin. Both were affordable experiences in a lovely venue within 20 minutes from our home. The arts are a very important part of our lives and we look forward to continuing to benefit from Thrasher Opera House as a part of our community.

I would use this venue even more for screenings of independent films and midwest performers needing an ideal space. Would also be lovely for weddings.

When I look around the audience at any of our performances, I see total engagement in peoples faces, whether the venue is Celtic, folk, country, pop, jazz, theater or comedy. This to me is the reward of all the hard work that it takes to keep the doors open of such a gem in our small community! Many of these faces in the audience belong to those that have traveled often many miles from our neighboring states to see their favorite artist perform. And, each performer finds the warmth, acoustics, and overall experience of Thrasher to be so unique that repeat performances are almost always requested by the artist. If you haven't experienced Thrasher, this MUST be put on your "A" list!

The Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake is an absolute treasure. The programming has always been diverse and very entertaining. My family and friends look forward to the performances. The staff does an excellent job of involving the community youth in many educational and fun projects. All of our local businesses have benefitted from the extra activity The Trasher Opers House created.

The Thrasher is definitely a FIND. The building is well maintained, acoustics are great, soft great chairs, wine and beer are available which is a nice touch, the staff are always very kind and helpful, and the PRICE is right. They offer very affordable events so one can truly experience new ventures without hesitation. We drive one hour to come to the Thrasher and it is well worth it. We have a lovely dinner at a restaurant nearby ant then walk over to the event.

We have seen a jazz singer, Eric Bibb that we had seen in Liverpool, England where we sat in a large stadium and he was quite far away to sitting just three rows away from him at the Thrasher!!!! For St. Patty's weekend we saw a wonderful riveting irish band, and recently we saw the two men from Switchback who sang a mix of their own songs and Christmas songs. Even our 21 and 34 year old sons thoroughly enjoyed their phenomenal voices and instrumental talent. We are incredibly fortunate to have the Trasher available and one that is able to search out for a wide variety of talent. We have NEVER been disappointed yet, and doubt we ever will be. Because we have never been disappointed it also encourages one to try new events that you may not have thought about going to. We are anxious to see and hear our next event. We have been telling others about this "find" and will be bringing more with us as we continue to venture to this beautiful town.

We have enjoyed many musical events at Thrasher. Almost all have been artists we would not have been aware of, or unable to see because of cost of tickets, and distance to travel to a larger venue. It is a rare occurrence to be disappointed in the performances that we choose to attend.
We
love everything about Thrasher- the outstanding acoustics, intimate atmosphere, comfy seats, as well as being able to meet our friends who also enjoy the music here. Very often the artists comment on how much they love to perform at Thrasher. They seem to deeply appreciate our small town charm, friendliness, outstanding welcome they receive, and our love of their music. It feels very cool to be a part of this 'inside' perspective. There is always an opportunity to meet & speak with the artists who perform here. I think they view it as a 'getaway' stop while on the road.
We love Thrasher, and wish it a long, prosperous run.

Seeing visitors come to Green Lake to hear the music, participate in community performances, and support this venue. Tourism is a major contributor to the economic well being of this small town, TOH has been a major driver in bringing people here over the years. The Arts & Music bring people who are literate and appreciative of the value of education at all levels and ages.

Help them expand and grow in being able to provide more activities, more rest room facilities, and obtain a dedicated space for refreshments. Additional space for an art gallery and social interacting during intermission & before and after shows would be terrific.

The Thrasher Opera house, located in charming , historical, rural Green Lake , WIS is a charming venue and the FIRST time our teenage children enjoyed their first concert with their parents--Willy Porter was the concert and we all loved how close and personal the venue is.

Since then,
we have seen Second City (another popular event for multiple generations) and the POCO band. All memorable concerts . We will travel far to see a concert at the Thrasher Opera House in beautiful Green Lake.
