Now Playing!

"Meshuggah-Nuns" by Dan Goggin plays November 20 - December 13, 2015.

Yes! The nuns of Little Hoboken Convent are back in action in Mantorville!

We find the Sisters on an all-expense-paid trip on the “Faiths of All Nations” Cruise. It seems that the Kunkels (the poor family who live behind Mt. Saint Helen’s School) have won the lottery. Although they had given their ticket to the Sisters in exchange for some gifts, when it was discovered that the ticket was a winner, the Sisters returned the ticket to the Kunkels. In appreciation, the Kunkels have paid for the Sisters’ trip.

The ship runs into a terrible storm that lasts nearly a week. Many people become seasick including the entertainers – the cast of “Fiddler on the Roof.” All except the actor playing “Tevye”, that is. The ship’s captain, knowing of the Sisters’ show-business savvy, requests that the Sisters and “Tevye” put on an original revue. The result: “Meshuggah-Nuns!”

The show plays Fri/Sat/Sun November 20 - December 13. Friday shows are at 7:30 p.m. NEW THIS YEAR: Saturday shows will be at 4:00 p.m. to allow for easier travel by our patrons! Sunday shows are at 2:00 p.m. Adult tickets are $20. Reduced rate tickets are $17.


Making plans for February? Consider "Steel Magnolias" by Robert Harling, playing Fri/Sat/Sun February 5-28



 Auditions for Robert Harling's "Steel Magnolias" will be Sunday, Nov. 22 and Sunday, Nov. 29, at 6 pm at the Mantorville Opera House.

We are looking for a few good people to volunteer to take tickets and host a sales table during the rest of our 2013-14 season. Contact us is you are interested.


Audience participation is a requirement for the melodramatic portion of our season. Come prepared to cheer for the hero and heroine, boo the villain or villainess, and applaud the efforts of our characters (or groan at their jokes!)



We are excited with all of our shows of the 2014 - 2015 season.  Watch our Schedule Page for more information.


Many, many thanks to our generous corporate sponsors who help us keep the costs to our patrons down throughout our 2013-2014 season.
