Volunteer At The Goss Opera House

The Goss Opera House is the heart of downtown Watertown because of the vision of Charles
Goss and the commitment of our community.

We invite you to share your talents as a volunteer at the Goss Opera House. Whether you
prefer cleaning, clerical work, serving as a tour guide, staffing concerts and events, or doing
some heavy lifting we are always looking for support. Contact our Executive Director, Missy
Sinner (info@thegossoperahouse.com or 605-868-1556) to join our extraordinary army of
volunteers.

Our Mission

The Friends of the Goss Opera House are committed to sustaining Watertown’s last remaining
opera house, providing our community with rich entertainment and beautiful event space in an
authentic historic building.

Your gift to support the Friends of the Goss helps to ensure this extraordinary landmark is
preserved for generations to come.

Gifts to the Friends of the Goss may be tax deductible. Gifts may include cash, stocks, bonds,
CDs, mutual funds or IRA rollovers. Donors may also make gifts of real estate such as land or a
home. Gifts of such items that have an appreciated value may offer some significant tax
advantages, such as avoiding capital gains tax and other benefits. Making a gift through your
estate plan is also an option. A “planned gift” may be as bequest in a will and is an important
tool for donors considering a future gift to the Friends of the Goss. A planned gift could also be a
sophisticated estate plan that provides the donor with tax and income benefits now.

Please contact our Executive Director, Missy Sinner (info@thegossoperahouse.com or 605-
868-1556) for more information about how you can support the Friends of the Goss.

The Goss Opera House Crown Logo

“The Goss Opera House is a gem, not only for Watertown but for South Dakota and the Upper Midwest. The acoustics of the Goss are superb, which is evident to both the performers and the listeners. You can manufacture the acoustics of a space to a point, but there needs to be a bit of magic in order for it to sound truly great – which happens in Watertown.”
