Attraction details
Owner description: Built in 1882, Tibbits Opera House features an exquisite, award-winning, French Second Empire exterior. It is among the oldest theatres in Michigan. Rich in history and ambiance, the theatre offers nearly perfect acoustics, an intimate 500-seat setting, and great entertainment year round. Shows vary from professional Summer Theatre, family shows, and an Entertainment Series of professional touring performers to community events, plays, musicals, concerts and variety shows. The building houses a permanent 19th century art collection and a unique community mural of "American Gothic." An art gallery exhibits shows by regional artists. Tours are available by appointment.

Took a daytrip to see this historic place with some entertainment. Lobby was very small. Too small for our busload and there was another busload trying to squeeze in when one of the employees squeezed from theater into lobby and rudely told us we couldn't come in yet and we shouldn't be blocking the doors. The theater needs renovation and some cleaning and it needs a better pre-show plan and friendlier people.
