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.
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.
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!
The opera house is a great venue to enjoy so many different kinds of entertainment - from George Winston to Richie Havens. And the acoustics are fabulous!
