Wareham Opera House

The history of the Wareham begins well more that 100 years ago. Manhattan businessman H.S. Moore built a wood and stone theater on the site in 1884 and named it The Coliseum. In 1893, Harry P. Wareham purchased the building, installed electricity and renamed it The Wareham Opera House.

  • August 15 7:00 pm John Michael Montgomery

    JMM taught us that “life’s a dance you learn as you go… sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow.” And if you want to attend this event, you had better show some initiative, because there are limited seats left.

    He launched in the country music scene as one half of the country duo, Montgomery Gentry. In the early 1990s, he began his major label solo career. His 1992 hit song “Life’s a Dance” is No. 9 on the Houston Press of the Top 10 Best Country Songs of the 90s.

    His love songs, from “I Swear,” “I Love the Way You Love Me,” and “I Can Love You Like That,” helped set the standard for a generation. His hit, “Sold,” hit the No.-1 spot on the country charts in the United States and in Canada in July 1995. 

    The concert also features local county group, the Jared Daniels Band.
