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.

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...More

I know it's not trendy, but keeping the flag flying for Gilbert and Sullivan and other light opera should be applauded in my opinion. This year's OLO Mikado was great fun, nicely adapted for the political season, designed and costumed lavishly and lovingly, and performed...More

Powerful voices brought Cole Porter's "Kiss Me Kate" to life. A thoroughly entertaining, top quality production brought laughs as well as tears. And in a cozy theater (plus generous leg room). We'll be back.

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...More
