Fun Fact about the community
Our Opera House theatre is supposedly “haunted” by the ghost of Jack Johnson, one of the original actors and founder of the theatre troupe “Jack’s Players”. The Players started acting on the Opera House stage 100 years ago this year. Anytime something goes wrong – electrical issues, falling props, missing costumes – during a performance or rehearsal, the cast and crew all know who’s behind it!

Local hot spot/where will you find YPs hanging out
Our newly-opened Opera House Wine Bar and Latté Lobby coffee shop – free wi-fi, full coffee/tea/smoothie bar, 11 wines, and 6 beers available.

Best reason for a YP to visit
New Rockford is a cultural hot spot on the prairie, with theatre productions, music and concerts, an active wine club, historical museums, yoga and other fitness classes – a wide variety of activities are available each week!

Anything else you would like to share about the community
For the first time, the Opera House theatre will be running two productions for the summer, meaning that almost every night from June 29th to August 16th there will be at least one live theatre show running!
