Skip Gorman on stageSupport the Pocahontas County Opera House

Over twenty years ago, the Opera House was just a dusty old building and the dream of a handful of determined people. The vision and enthusiasm of those people quickly spread, and with the help of the local community, the Opera House has since become a thriving center for live music, theatre and dance, as well as an affordable community gathering place for special events.

We want you to be a part of the great things happening here at the Opera House. Ticket sales cover only a fraction of our annual operating expenses. Your support will help the Opera House to continue bringing great music and performances to Marlinton and Pocahontas County.

The Pocahontas County Opera House Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 organization.
