Took friends from Richmond to the Opera House on November 2 to see Larry Keel and the Natural Bridge. We had a blast. Second time there for a bluegrass concert and can't wait to go back!

Pocahontas County Opera House is a lovely old building with phenomenal acoustics. The genres of music continue to broaden, from a core of traditional and bluegrass, to Latin, African, Jazz and contemporary, in addition to specialty shows and plays. It is a venue for local, state and national musicians to play to a small crowd (300 max.), providing a unique... More

We held our Daughters Wedding dinner at the Opera House. The facility is great and open. We had tables, buffet and a dance floor without crowding. The staff is excellent and helpful. Perfect place that family still talk about!

I love the Opera House - the acoustics are awesome and they bring in some great talent, then charge a very small price for what you are getting. It is a beautiful facility too. The community is so lucky to have it and all the dedicated volunters who make it all happen. Over the years, I have seen John McCutcheon... More

Saw "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?" 1960's musical. The 4 ladies did a phenomenal job and everyone in the audience was singing and having a great time. Don't go expecting plush seating and amazing sets it is a small town and small production but they did a great job and would go again to see another show. 8.00 dollars... More

Upon exploring Marlington we saw an advetisement for a group doing a benefit for Mountain Top Removal awareness and we decided to go to the Pocahontas County Opera House and see what this revitalized theater was about. The performance had... More
