Encore Michigan

The Croswell Opera House

In existence since 1866, The Croswell Opera House is the oldest theater in Michigan and the third-oldest continuously operating theater in the United States.

We are preserving Adrian’s cultural heritage by maintaining a building that has played a pivotal role in the community’s history, with programming that’s in line with the building’s original purpose.

We take pride in staging professional-caliber productions in a comfortable community setting.  The high quality of our productions allows us to draw patrons from around Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio.

We provide a top-notch educational experience for area youth interested in the performing arts by exposing them to high standards and production values and giving them an opportunity to work with accomplished professionals in their field.
