SECOND UPDATE March 23, 2020

Dear Friends of the Monticello Opera House,

Due to public health and safety concerns, we are unfortunately postponing until further notice MOH's production of On Golden Pond, and we are cancelling auditions for the show previously scheduled for Monday, March 23 and Tuesday, March 24.

As announced earlier, the Opera House Stage Company decided as a precaution to postpone their latest Murder Mystery Dinner Theater show Killing Mr. Withers. It was previously scheduled for April 17-May 9, but will instead go up August 7-29, 2020 in the downstairs Perkins Hall at the Opera House.

Also postponed until further notice is El Gato Sin Amigos (The Nobody Likes Me Cat) Children’s Show produced by Tallahassee Hispanic Theater, previously scheduled for March 28-29.

Our plans may change as we respond to this rapidly unfolding health situation. We will keep you informed of any additional schedule changes on our website, our Facebook page, and via email.

Our box office and our office will keep regular hours, and as always, tickets may be purchased online at  Thank you for your support and understanding.
