The Opera House - a place that always makes me smile. Friendly enthusiastic employees (mostly college students) greet you, sell tickets and refreshments - and offer good advise on the best beers. We usually come for their eccletic films, but this time it was for live (very live) music - The Hillbilly Gypsies. They were over the top - and... More

We were spending the weekend in Shepherdstown and wanted a diversion for a Saturday night and chose the show at the Opera House. I knew by the description online that it was a little risque and it did not let me down. The Opera House is a charming small venue and they seem to pick eclectic entertainment. The show was... More

The Opera House is entertainment central for the town - offering live music, vintage and current films in an historic environment. Sip wine, snack on fresh popcorn, bringing a cushion for the old theater seats is encouraged and a well-kept secret among locals!

Have been many times where I did not know the entertainers and have been pleasantly surprised. Have a new collection of music that I have purchased there. Great staff... More

The groups the Management team schedules are well thought out and seem to be the type of performers who would have played at the Opera House during the turn of the century - 2 centuries ago that its - :) When you go be sure to check out the chandelier...

A delightful small theater that brings in independent movies and live acts. It is a very small theater, though the night I went it wasn't an issue. The only reason I didn't give it a five rating is the historic seats are historically uncomfortable. However if you arrive in time the front of the theater has couches and they are... More

An intimate theater that seats about 125 people, the Opera House has a wide variety of movies, sports events like the Orange Bowl, and an eclectic mix of musical performances to suit nearly every taste. Check them out at operahouselive.com
