The Wright Opera House takes the COVID19 situation very seriously and we strongly encourage the use of masks. We have air purifiers in both our tavern and theatre spaces, disposable masks and hand sanitizer available throughout the building, and scheduled cleanings before and after events. As always, if you are feeling sick or have been exposed to someone with a positive COVID19 case, please refrain from attending.
A Historic Masterpiece

When The Friends of the Wright purchased the building in 2011, two main stage curtains were discovered in the basement - The Original and The Second.
