Live! In The House Concert Series 2017-2018

We are pleased to announce the tenth annual “Live in the House Concert Series” to be presented in the historic Pemberville Opera House.  Nine shows are scheduled to take place on the first Saturday of each month September through May.

Live entertainment is just a walk away!  





 Even though the elevator is finished, we still need $12000.00 to complete our payoff.  Can you help?  Would you please consider giving to this incredible cause.  The elevator has allowed more individuals up into the opera house this year than ever before. Friends that have never seen a show at the opera house were able to do so this year.  Grandparents were able to see their grandchildren perform in plays and recitals this year because of your generosity.  Thank you to all that have donated, and please, if you can, give again!  Thank you!



Every little bit helps us reach the finish line!! Please give today!


Mail to: PFAHS, P.O. Box 802, Pemberville, Ohio 43450 or click on  or  or call Carol 419-419-9645 

Thank you for helping!!
