C.L. Hoover Opera House
E
8
njoy great performances and
outstanding artwork at the
C.L. Hoover Opera House in
Junction City.
In 1898, the opera house was born.
The limestone portion of the building
was reserved for the opera house. The
red brick portion included government
offices, including the fire
department.
Unfortunately,
fire
gutted the building, and it
had to be remodeled. In
2008, the opera house
received a
complete
renovation. It retains its 19th-century
charm while enjoying all the 21stcentury
amenities.
The opera house schedules an
ambitious performance slate, but that's
not all. Stroll the opera house halls and
examine the artworks in the lobbies.
The auditorium seats about 450
people and there's not a bad seat in the
house. For more intimate performances,
the organization uses a small stage in
the spacious lobby.
The Junction City Arts Council,
Junction City Little Theater, and the
Junction City Community Band also
share the opera house's space.
Geary County Visitors Guide
Recently, the opera house purchased
its adjacent building. The building will
house the organization's youth
education program, an art studio, and
a small art gallery. Additionally, the
space will offer two rehearsal/event
spaces.
Mural mania
While the opera house is Junction
City's cultural mecca, the city's exterior
walls also display civic pride.
Murals honor Junction City Police,
the military, and Geary County's
heritage.
Many business have commercial
murals on their buildings.
