21ST CENTURY AMENITIES WITH 19TH CENTURY CHARM

Welcome to the McPherson Opera House – Kansas premier performance venue and rental facility: 21st century amenities with 19th century charm.

The rental spaces – auditorium, ballroom, CHS room, Rose Morris room, and Mary Anderson Arts Center – provide flexible, thoroughly modern, historically beautiful spaces for events of every kind.
