Dothan has been pleasing crowds since 1915 when the city fathers built the Dothan Opera House, a facility where the acoustics are so good that the Atlanta Symphony chose it as the place to record their records. Recently renovated, the Victorian-styled center of Dothan's cultural life is on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
Today, the Opera House hosts dance recitals, business seminars and meetings, choral ensembles, beauty pageants, community theatre, and concerts in the beautiful 590-seat theatre and upper-level conference room. Other amenities include two large and four small dressing rooms, and a historic elevator. The entire facility is ADA accessible. Professional production equipment is provided including conventional theatre lighting, a public address audio system, contour curtains plus free bars.
