Big things are coming to the Ohio Theatre in beautiful downtown Lima! The theatre has changed ownership, and we are planning a slate of events that we hope has something for everyone. The theatre will continue to host fantastic concerts, and will still be a venue available for rental for weddings and other special occasions. But our main focus is going to be on producing original theatre, including musicals and plays, and getting the whole community involved! Our theatre company called "The Avante Garage" has produced shows in Nashville, New York City, Los Angeles, and now Lima! We are also adding a restaurant that will be serving up mouthwatering meals before every performance.  Add to the mix a nightly piano bar, holiday celebrations, acting classes for all levels, and even a full time bakery/cafe featuring delicious pastries and beverages! We hope you'll be creating a lot of new memories at the Ohio Theatre with us!
