What an amazzzzzzing year of artists you've assembled! I've got at LEAST 4 more I'm rather sure I'll be attending! Thanks so much to ALL of you at the Thrasher for bringing this incredible array of uber talented folks to come here and touch our hearts, feed our souls and lift our spirits. It's a very special gift and I am eternally grateful.

A gem of a venue with an eclectic mix of entertainment. Not a bad seat in the house due to it's capacity and seating arrangements. We really enjoy our visits and look forward to more great concerts in the future.

This organization brings amazing musicians to a rural community that would otherwise have no chance to hear them without driving for hours. They support the community, and host many events that contribute to the health, welfare, and growth of our lovely little city and the surrounding area. A wonderful place for the arts and residents to gather and enjoy the good life of Green Lake.

The Thrasher is the best place to see a variety of performances in Central Wisconsin. We are so glad to have this wonderful varied venue in our neck of the woods. We may be far from the maddening crowd, but always up for great entertainment.

Love Thrasher Opera House - This small town theatre works hard to bring unique entertainment to a very small rural WISCONSIN community, not only for our community but people come for miles around, which brings in outside revenue! They are also the venue for our local high school performances I especially enjoyed seeing the high school Christmas programs

We have quite a few music venues in our own city, but would rather drive the 45 minutes to the Thrasher House to see concerts. The selection is greater, the music is better, and the surroundings are so much more comfortable. The Thrasher serves music lovers not drunks like the venues in Oshkosh. I have yet to be disappointed on many years of faithful attendance.

We have been coming to the Thrasher Opera House for about 14 years. We originally drove from Madison for shows and more recently from Wisconsin Rapids, since our retirement and move here. We have enjoyed such a wonderful variety of music! Cajun, Irish/Celtic, country, folk, and rock. We love the small, intimate venue where there are no bad seats. We could never go back to the big Collesium type of concerts! The people who run the Thrasher have always been friendly and accommodating. Green Lake is a nice destination in that it’s a little over an hour from us and we can have dinner in one of several nice restaurants before the show. I can’t say enough good things about the .thrasher Opera House!
