Built in 1889, Bastrop Opera House to house touring companies, the theater later became a movie theater and then a teen center. Then, in 1979, with the threat of a sale for back taxes, Bastrop Opera House Inc. was chartered and restored. Under the direction of Chester Eitze, Executive Director since 1984, volunteers from board member to actors and stage crews continue to uphold the tradition of performing arts programming. The mission of the Bastrop Opera House is to produce quality theatrical productions that entertain, inform and stimulate audiences. The Bastrop Opera House offers family entertainment year-round at modest prices.
