Do you enjoy movies, music, and theatrical mayhem such as Romeo & Juliet & Zombies at the Stonington Opera House? Many of our Stonington Farmers Market customers plan their Fridays in season around shopping our market, having lunch in town, and then catching the entertainment at the Opera House on Friday night. If you do, show your support by giving any donation amount to complete the construction of the restoration of the Opera House. Over half of the $975,000 needed has been pledged by the Board of Directors. There is currently a $100,000 shortfall needed to fund the project. Your contributions are tax deductible.
Opera House Arts began construction on October 23 of the final components needed to complete its restoration and revival of the 1912 Stonington Opera House, on the National Register of Historic Places. Shown from left: contractor Brian Burgess; Bob Tobin, incoming Chair of the Opera House Board of Directors; architect Doug McMillan of Eric Chase Architecture; Producing Artistic Director Linda Nelson; and founding Artistic Director Judith Jerome. Funds are still needed for this project: to participate please contact Linda Nelson, Producing Artistic Director, firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-367-2788.
