More Than
Just A Theatre

Built in 1882, Tibbits Opera House is the Center for the Arts and Entertainment in Coldwater Country/Pure Michigan. Enjoy year-round entertainment from professional theatre and concerts to community events and children’s theatre. Beyond the exquisite facade is an intimate 500-seat theatre with excellent acoustics. Browse the art gallery and gift shop before the show or at intermission. Come enjoy the show!

To Our Valued Patrons:

In cooperation with the Governor’s directive, as of March 24, 2020, staff are now working from home and preparing for our summer season.

Theatre is alive even though the COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on our spring schedule. Tibbits is strong and thanks to our many friends, we will continue to be strong.
This year will be different. Life for all of us has changed. We understand that everyone is feeling uncertain and worried. We also know your family’s needs come first. 
Since we can’t bring you to the theatre, we’re bringing theatre to you! Tibbits is now taking an educational as well as an entertainment approach to our social media content. Visit Tibbits’ Facebook page daily.

  • Watch video clips from live performances being streamed from professional artists all over the world and maybe highlights from our own vault.
  • Get activities to keep your kids’ creative juices flowing or see and learn about different vocations within the theatre.
  • Be entertained and enlightened!

If you can, Tibbits could use your help to keep these efforts alive.
The Coronavirus situation is hitting us too. We rely heavily on ticket sales to keep us going. Even with no events in the building, there are still bills to pay. Please consider helping Tibbits now.
