Well done theater with a wide variety of different classic presentations. Very well known in this part of Ohio. Proffessionally presented in a college theatre.
We made theater the center of a weekend - 4 plays on Friday and Saturday. Three of the four (Mikado, Annie Get Your Gun, and Kiss me Kate) were absolutely outstanding. The fourth (Have a Heart) was not in the same class. We attributed the problem to a very weak book rather than a poor performance. We are already looking... 更多
No wonder this series has been ongoing for 38 years. It is just wonderful. We saw 4 shows in two days beginning with the masters of light opera, Gilbert and Sullivan. As in England, we all stood to sing "God Save the Queen" , an historical touch seldom seen in the U.S. This production of "The Mikado" was unusual in... 更多

One could be of differing opinions on the staging, which was mostly good, the sets were excellent, costumes mostly good (they are confused about what an appropriate hemline is for each era and some were WAY too short for the decade and inconsistent with the other costumes on stage.

It makes the whole... 更多

The performances , costumes, set and staging were all outstanding and the actor who played the Lord High Executioner was hilarious. The... 更多
If you're not already familiar with the Ohio Light Opera, do yourself a favor and just come. If you're worried about the word "opera", don't. From an audience perspective, these light operas are much more like musicals. The music is very accessible. Hardly anyone ever dies. The presentations are peppered with jokes, and the cast are all talented comedic actors.... 更多
Having lived in Wooster for over 20 years I was aware of the Ohio Light Opera and knew of it's great reputation. But I am embarrassed to admit it took me 20 years to finally attend a performance last summer. It was WONDERFUL! We saw Brigadoon and enjoyed it so so much! I plan on attending a few shows this... 更多
