The Cheboygan Opera House

The elegant and history-filled Cheboygan Opera House was originally constructed in 1877. The beautiful facility played an important role in the history of the colorful lumbering era in Northern Michigan. Twice ravaged by fires and then rebuilt in 1888 and 1903, the Opera Housenow houses City Hall, Police Department, Fire Department, and the gorgeous 582-seat Opera House as it did in its early years.

In 1960, the Opera House closed and it was 24 years later before it came to life again. The elegantly restored Opera House is managed by the Cheboygan Area Arts Council with the support of The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. The Opera House is acoustically superb, a Victorian theatre that is the focal point for entertainment and the performing arts in the Straits of Mackinaw area and beyond.

The Opera House is a year 'round arts and theatre destination for all of Northern Michigan. The children's programs provide arts, theatre, music, and puppetry. The annual youth arts festival in late March celebrates the talents of children throughout the North.

The Concert Series at the Opera House brings in national, regional, and local talent. Since 1986, dance classes have been offered at the Opera House in modern, jazz, ballet, lyrical, tap, and character for area adults and children.

The Cheboygan Opera House is a gem. Filled with year 'round cultural activities, the Opera House is bringing arts to Northern Michigan as it has since 1877.
