Welcome to autumn and a very busy couple of months in YOUR Vergennes Opera House. We hope you can make one or two or three or all of these events and in the process bring a friend, neighbor or family member or two. 

We want to thank all the sponsors and underwriters who have made many of these shows possible especially our season sponsors: RPM: Restoration Performance Motorcars, Vergennes Animal Hospital, J.W. & D.E. Ryan and the radio stations of the Hall Communications Radio Group (WOKO, WJOY, WKOL).

Check the listings below for what's going on or go to the Calendar of Events on the
Vergennes Opera House website. 

A spooky fun time on Halloween!
Once every seven years we get to enjoy Halloween on a Friday and this year an event is planned to benefit the local food shelf. There will be lots of fun, great music, costume contests and prizes. Time to get out your very most favorite costume, or create one, grab some non-perishable items and head on over to the Opera House. Tickets are available at Classic Stitching on Main Street in Vergennes or online here

Dessert Bash at the Vergennes Opera House

There are a few tickets left for the Red Green show on Sunday, November 9th but they are going fast!

Red Green is Canada's foremost and hilarious handyman.You'll never look at a roll of duct tape the same again. There are a limited number of tickets available at Classic Stitching and online here. Don't wait though as this will surely sell out soon!

The Bluegrass Gospel Project explores and expands the tradition of bluegrass gospel in unforgettable ways with music from U2 to the Stanley Brothers, Sam Cooke to Steve Earle. Their natural on-stage abilities, blissful vocal work, incredible musicianship and tight-knit camaraderie is infectious and unforgettable. Tickets: $15 and may be purchased online here or at Classic Stitching on Main Street in Vergennes or at the door the evening of the performance.

This event was generously underwritten by The Vergennes Animal Hospital, RPM Restoration Performance Motorcars, J.W. & D.E. Ryan and an anonymous donor.
