In the summer season the opportunity to find out more about the Opera House Arts events and buy advance tickets is one of the conveniences of shopping the Stonington Farmers Market on Fridays from 10AM to Noon. In off season we provide updates here on our website to remind you that OHA! is one of Stonington’s most precious creative resources.Here’s what’s happening March 24th:

The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize winning classic novel, is one of the most challenged and banned books in the U.S.. In it, Steinbeck depicts in spare, beautiful, and chillingly realistic prose, the economic, social, and environmental tragedy that has become known as the American Dust Bowl. On Wednesday, March 25 at 7 p.m. Opera House Arts (OHA) is proud to present a reprise of its successful 2014 live performance of The Grapes of Wrath, alongside a Town Hall-style discussion on the issues of poverty and hunger in the U.S. The presentation is a continuation of OHA’s The Living Room Project series. The show, discussion, and related activities will also be part of a special day-long symposium for high school students at the Opera House on March 24.
