Opera House Cleanup Day May 16

Calling all Stonington Farmers Market friends–one of our vendors needs volunteers:

The Stonington Opera House, a striking architectural highlight of Stonington’s Main Street and working waterfront, is 103 years old and on the National Register of Historic Places. Join other volunteers for an hour or two on Saturday, May 16 between 1 pm and 4 pm to show your love for this archetypal island building and its legacy, stretching across multiple generations, as part of Opera House Arts’ (OHA) annual Spring Clean Up and Maintenance.

It’s a big old building and many hands are needed as OHA races toward the July grand opening of its new lobby and scene shop! Tasks include indoor and outdoor painting, gardening, and spring cleaning of windows, the artists’ green room and dressing room areas, concessions, etc. Simply stop by OHA’s Main Street box office, at the corner of Main and School Streets, and see Pam who can set you up to volunteer for a shift of any length convenient to you. You can also email info@operahousearts.org or call 367-2788, or just stop by the theater in your cleaning or gardening clothes on Saturday May 16.

Opera House Arts (OHA) is celebrating its 16th season offering year round events at the historic Stonington Opera House, including Shakespeare in Stonington, a site-specific performance of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, the exciting return of contemporary dancers Bridgman|Packer, a free movie night on the fish pier, and more; and in its fourth summer of Chamber at the Church, a nine-concert series at the 1870 Burnt Cove Church. For the full schedule and to purchase advance tickets, please go to www.operahousearts.org or call 207-367-2788.
