The Washington Opera House
Today(Dec 15th 2015) we went to Maysville, Kentucky and visited The Washington Opera House. We met up with Mike Thomas, whom was very friendly and hospitable: genuinely happy to accommodate our request for a tour on short notice (I called Mike on Monday). On our tour, Mike was very knowledgeable with the history of the Opera House and the community around it. Going into detail about the building, we felt as if we were going back in time. The Opera House is welcoming, down to the original tile in the foyer. We heard about past actors/actresses who have visited and/or actually preformed there such as Tom Mix, Harry Houdini to the present likes of Rich Little and George Clooney. Today, it is run by The Maysville Players and shows are put on about 5 times a year. So if you're in Maysville, stop by the Opera House and obtain a schedule of future shows, or call Mike to set up a tour.
