Since 1970, the Mantorville Theatre Company has been entertaining crowds and making history with unique summer melodramas, heart-warming-holiday shows and spring spectaculars all at the beautiful Opera House on 5th street. Nestled in the historic little hamlet of Mantorville in southeastern Minnesota, the Mantorville Opera House will continue to be a one-of-a-kind location for an olde-tyme experience, but we need your help.  The time has come, heroes (cheer!) to replace the stage lighting so we can save the heroine (sigh) and bring the villain's nafarious deeds into the light (boo! hiss!).  It will take daring, cunning and, most importantly, money.  We depend on community support from our volunteer actors and ushers to our bulding maintenance needs.  Please help us with your monetary donation!    

Though charity is its own reward, we offer the following additional incentives for your donation:

Level 1: $5-$30 will win our sincerest gratitude.

Level2: $30-$75 gets Level 1 plus a voicemail from a Villain or Hero from one of our melodramas.

Level 3: $75-$200 gets level 1, 2 and 1 ticket to one of our summer melodramas.   

Level 4: $200-$500 will earn Level 1, 2 and 3 plus the Melodrama preparedness kit! Arrive at the show like a boss with 1 boo horn, 1 t-shirt (villain, heroine or hero) and a pamphlet detailing recommended behavior at a summer show.

Level 5: $500-$1000 receives Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 plus 4 tickets to each of our summer melodramas.

Level Infinity: $1000+ gets you Level 1,2,3 and 4 plus you will be written into a summer melodrama and get shot by the villain. This may be you or your “favorite” friend or family member.

Donations will not go unnoticed, and all givers will be listed in our programs during our summer melodrama series for 2017 according to their level of benefaction. Thank you for generocity as we work together to Light the Opera House!
