Welcome to the 2017-18 Subscription Series!

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, I want to welcome you to the 2017-18 Fairmont Opera House Subscription Series!

This year is shaping up to be one of the biggest and busiest years in Fairmont Opera House history. We have already seen the triumphant return of Civic Summer Theatre with their production of “Grease” and one of the largest and most successful Childrens Theatre Camps in Opera House history. Coming up this year, we have 10 Subscription Shows, 6 Al A Carte shows, several rentals, movie rentals, a dance recital, and so much more.

But the excitement does not end with the shows. The ripple effect of what we are accomplishing here in Fairmont is being felt throughout the state. In the last 6 months, I have been asked to serve on the Board of Directors for the Minnesota Presenters Network, work as an adjudicator on the Minnesota State Arts Board Touring Grant Panel, and attend several conferences and events as a special guest and speaker.

I am so blessed to be part of this organization and receive all of these accolades, but none of it would be possible without you, the patrons. Because of your unending support, I am able to come to work every day to a job that I love, work with people who are among the best I’ve met, and serve a community that is second to none. For that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

All my best,

Blake Potthoff
Executive Director
Fairmont Opera House
