Today's schedule is diverse, from folk, rock, classical, and jazz. Recent renovations include a new steel roof, sound system and theater seats. Relaxed, intimate and all seats have a great view. The Opera House is located in the heart of Jim Thorpe's historic district, just a quick stroll to pubs, restaurants, lodging and shops. « less

My Father and I visited last weekend for the first time. We enjoyed the show, the atmosphere and the beautiful, historical building! Will definitely try to make a return trip!

We saw a Simon & Garfunkel Tribute at the Mauch Chunk Opera House. The performance was fantastic - AJ Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle. The venue is small and cozy. Wine, beer and deserts are served. It was a wonderful experience!

These guys were so talented they should be playing to huge audiences! The Opera House is so nice we see a show there every time we visit JT. The people are so friendly and all prices on everything are quite reasonable.

The Mauch Chunk Opera House brings back the old theater mystic. Great, intimate venue that draws quite a few big names as well as some awesome local talent. Tucked away on the main street of Jim Thorpe it still draws a good crowd no matter who's playing.

Nice small venue. Can't imagine what it would be like with a rock band playing to 395 seats. Enjoyed the band and the singers. The musical director is a hoot.

Mauch Chunk Opera House offers alot of shows from multiple genres of music. The staff/volunteers are very nice. Lots of history in the building. If you ever go, take a walk up the stairs to the balcony. There are a bunch of old fashioned pictures of the town- really neat!

we enjoyed the sounds and strings of the Still Hand String band and the Dead Winter Carpenters in a quaint historical opera house with great acoustics. It was fun to hear the music presented by both groups in such a small, cozy , laid back venue where the artists were so close and readily accessible. Beverages(beer, wine, soda, coffee) and... More
