Woodstock Opera House


Built in 1889 as City Hall, the Woodstock Opera House has long been one of the top performing arts centers in the Midwest and is the jewel of McHenry County!

The Woodstock Opera House hosts a spectacular variety of programming and events each year including: Concerts, Theatre, Dance, Visual Art, Educational programming, Lectures, Meetings, Receptions and more. The Opera House is a fully modernized theatre, without sacrificing its historical authenticity. It features contemporary sound, lighting, stage rigging, heating, air-conditioning and other amenities. In addition, the Opera House is equipped with a state of the art Box Office as well as a beautifully decorated reception area, the very popular, Stage Left Café.

The Opera House is owned and operated by the City of Woodstock and is dedicated to the promotion and support of the Theatrical Arts in northern Illinois. The Opera House along with the Old Courthouse stand guard over the brick-paved streets of the Historic Woodstock Square which are brimming with shops, boutiques, cafes, galleries and home to year-round special events. Fans of the movie 'Groundhog Day' will recognize the Woodstock Opera House, the square and many sites throughout town.
