139 High St, Mineral Point, WI, US
Bio: One of the few remaining film and performing arts houses in Wisconsin! Since 1915 the Mineral Point Opera House has offered the community an outstanding venue for a diverse program of musical, dance and theatrical presentations. We are proud to be the home of the Shake Rag Players and the Mineral Point Film Society. The initial phase of the restoration of the Mineral Point Opera House is complete. We will be celebrating our Grand Re-Opening on April 30, 2010. Thanks to grants and our generous donors, the theater now boasts updated heating and air conditioning, a long-overdue sprinkler system, historically accurate seating, and glorious plasterwork and decorative arts painting by the original group from the theater's inception. This part of the project is only the beginning. We still have a long way to go. Phase Two includes refurbishing the dressing rooms and replacing the sound, lighting and rigging systems. Phase Three will make the outside look as grand as the inside.
