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.

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.

A great community resource. A place where your child can perform in a 1 week production and the next week you can see a Top teir Astist, only place like it in the Fox Valley location. Plus only a 1 minute walk to the best Vacation lake in Wisconsin.

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!

Thrasher Opera House targets their performance schedule to attract all demographics whether families, couples or retirees. They really support the community in all they do which makes me what to support them. Thry offer quality entertainment and named acts as well as the Missuola Childrens Group.
