The Stoughton Opera House

We perform in the historic Stoughton Opera House (link), one of the cultural and architectural treasures of the Midwest. The Opera House first opened in 1901 and was fully restored in the 1990s.

The Opera House is located at:

381 E Main St
Stoughton, WI 53589

The entrance is on Main Street, west of the fire station. Once inside, there is a half flight of stairs up to the first floor lobby, where tickets are available. Elevator access is just west of the main entrance. Get off at the first floor for tickets.

Restrooms are located in the basement, also handicapped accessible. While you are down there, check out the photographs of historic Stoughton that adorn the basement hallways.

Opera House Seats

Opera House Seats, by Todd Klassy

Seats in the Opera House have a historic feel: Wood fold-down. You might want to bring a small cushion with you. Sight lines are good throughout the Opera House. The best seats are on the main floor near the stage or at the front of the balcony. The opera boxes on the side of the theater are not available for use during Actor’s Factory performances.

The Opera House has excellent acoustics. As Marc Eisen reported: “when the country star Patty Loveless performed (Sept. 17 [2010]), she proclaimed the acoustics to be ‘awesome’ and said the room would be perfect for a live recording.”

The Opera House hosts a range of national and local performers including folk music, classical music, comedy, and theater. See the Opera House event schedule here.
