Welcome to the home page of the Rockford Operetta Party, based in Rockford, Illinois, U.S.A. The company operated from 2006 to 2019. If you've never done opera or never attended one, you are missing out on a unique experience!

Ours is a community theatre, and it is a labor of love. Countless hours are spent on preparing our programmes: creating scenery and costumes, advertising, rehearsing, and making the best of our players - all of these things require time, effort, money and talent. Anyone who wishes to participate is given a chance to do so. Our shows have always been about giving beginners a start, as well as giving seasoned performers a place to explore less-familiar avenues of entertainment. We have occasional guest performers, but the majority of our group is made up local non-union performers.

There is more to a show than just its performers. We also need useful aid in creating scenery and costumes. If you have the ability to put a nail in a board, or stitch buttons on a coat, or pull a curtain rope, you can be involved with our show! These detailed jobs are important to the presentation of the final product, and we never have too many able hands to help out with these things. And helping us will look great on your resume. We always give good references to good volunteers.

Our Mission Statement: The goal of the Rockford Operetta Party is to provide residents of the Rockford area with recurring opportunities to attend or participate in English light operas of genuine artistic merit, and provide a unique entertainment experience that is unlike anything else in Rockford.

Upcoming Events: NONE

Following the production of "Lindarella's List" in 2019, productions by the Rockford Operetta Party have ceased. A number of things beyond our control have led to the decision to close the company, and no new productions will be forthcoming. Thank you for 13 years of memories, great productions, good music, and amazing audiences! We featured over 80 local performers in our 13 years, and made a significant impact on the Rockford arts community.
