My family and I are very fortunate to live a short walk from Thrasher Opera House in downtown Green Lake, a town of just over a thousand in central Wisconsin. The presence of this venue has given us the opportunity to enjoy music of all kinds (classical to folk), comedy, lazer light shows, vintage and independent films, theatre (from children’s to community to professional), lectures on local history and current issues, literary readings, and more.

Thanks to Thrasher’s presence, we’ve had the pleasure of opening our home to two opera singers from Lake Baikal, cooking for the touring directors from Missoula Children’s Theatre, learning how to build sets, forging relationships with other Thrasher volunteers and supporters. Thrasher is the catalyst for opening one’s eyes and ears, and heart!

The Thrasher Opera House is a venue that provides young people an opportunity to learn about theatre and music; it provides entertainment (ranging from music to theatre to film and beyond) for young adults, adults and "elders"....it is THE area gathering point for the performing arts! Without it this rural area would be pretty barren! I love the Thrasher! The programming, the wonderful staff (both paid and volunteer) and the audience all make this place "work". What a lovely "gift" the Thrasher is to this very broad community.

On a cold snowy eve, in a sweet small town, after the end of a long week to sit in the beauty of our beloved Thrasher Opera House and swoon to Eric Bibb is absolutely amazing. Folks come from far and wide to enjoy our opera house venue. It was restored through much passion and hard work and continues to operate and grow with the support of our dedicated staff, board of directors, community and visitors. What a treasure for the Green Lake area.

Thrasher Opera House brings an amazing variety of entertainment to a warm, cozy venue. Where else can you visit a charming lake town of 1000 people and listen to award winning musicians like legendary bluesman Eric Bibb, iconic folksinger Tom Rush & founding member of the Byrd's, Roger McGuinn? In addition, the Missoula children's theater keeps returning and involving young people from the area in their 1 week long workshops that culminate in charming performances.

There isn't a bad seat in the house and tickets are reasonably priced. Best of all, the artists love the place and it shows. They keep returning for more small town hospitality from the appreciative audiences!

I have attended many performances here and have found virtually all of the artists to comment on the scenic beauty and appreciative audiences. They love the place as much as the audience.

This outstanding venue a block away from Wisconsin’s deepest inland lake is a treasure as it hosts largely very talented individuals on the cusp of making it big. This means it hosts artists who, while not household names, are toward the top of their respective fields and so make every effort to excel in their music/performance.

Living in Chicago where theatre is top-notch, the Thrasher Opera House could easily compete there. The list of performers is outstanding geared to a variety of ages and musical appetites - from Children's Musicals to Corky Siegel. And, the venue is a beautifully renovated turn of the century building every seat is a good seat. The Thrasher Opera House is a gem for the Green Lake area and beyond!

Many types of events occur at the Thrasher, but what got me involved were the concerts--just an amazing array of top-quality acts, including folk, blues, jazz, classical, world music, and more. It's a very intimate experience: there are no bad seats in the house, and performers mingle freely with the audience at intermission and concert's end. The acts range from famous (Maria Muldaur, Richie Havens, Poco, George Winston) to those who ought to be better known (Guy Davis, Eric Bibb, Peter Mulvey, Rani Arbo), but they are all top quality entertainers.
