My wife and I have attended the Ohio Light Opera twice. It presents a neglected repertoire in good professional productions. Wooster is convenient to Cincinnati (where we live), Columbus, and Cleveland. A matter of concern is that the Freedlander Theatre is not equipped with a hearing-assistance system, something which would be helpful to many patrons.

My Fair Lady was terrific in every way. The sets, the voices, the acting, the costumes all were excellent. I don't know when we've spent such an enjoyable afternoon. We came out smiling and humming. We have been wanting to make a visit to the Wooster in the summer to check out the light opera venue. We'll be back.

Choose from a variety of offerings, and plan to stay for at least two of Ohio Light Opera's productions. Visit the helpful website.

Ohio Light Opera is a phenomenal company of talented actors. The shows are always great, the orchestra is wonderful and there is not a bad seat in Freedlander Theater. On this trip, we saw both Der Fledermaus and Call Me Madam. Both were extremely well done. The casts had a great sense of comedic timing and there wasn't one weak... More

Awesome show! Actors and actresses are extremely talented. The whole show I was thinking, I know a WHOLE bunch of people who are much less talented than these people but earning a LOT more money and are A LOT more famous.

For a Birthday getaway, we chose a B and B in Wooster to attend the Ohio Light Opera. We absolutely enjoyed the professional performance of Call Me Madam. The voices of the main role characters was outstanding. The costumes were also professional. The sets were minimal but the performance more than made up for the staging. I have performances in...

I decided to try the Ohio Light Opera in Wooster, Ohio for an evening's entertainment. They were performing My Fair Lady. I purchased the tickets in advance online and found that the price was very reasonable at $52 each. The location was easy to find and parking was ample and free. I got there a little early and was able... More

Take yourself here for a charming day/evening. This show is so well done and very professional. We have been coming for years each summer. Enjoy walking the campus at the college as well.

The Ohio Light Opera does a beautiful job with their performances. However, the last few times I have gone with a group of 6, all older adults with hearing difficulties. Only one of us was able to hear the entire performance. We were sitting about halfway back. We inquired about the use of audio devices as most theaters and opera... More

Usually offering 2 different shows a day mid-June through late August - the talent is superb, orchestra to match. Truly a destination worth visiting 2 - 3 times each summer ..... check their website for details and dates.
