If you were at the Stonington Farmers Market yesterday (and any Friday from 10AM to Noon) you probably already know this because the Opera House has a vendor booth at our market.If you didn’t know that, you’re probably buzz-bombing through our produce stalls instead of savoring every single sight and sound our market has to offer. Slow down….it’s summer! And you’re in Stonington! How cool is that?
What’s happening next week at OHA!:
Opera House Arts (OHA) is proud to offer community performances of a staged reading of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood at the Burnt Cove Church Community Center Wednesday, August 5 at 7p.m. and Friday, August 7 at 7p.m. The performance, directed by actor, director and OHA Board Member Peter Richards, will feature a live musical foley score composed by visiting Boston-based artist Anthony Colin Leva and performed by Leva and members of the cast. The cast includes a mix of members of the community as well as OHA artists in town for productions of The Seagull and The Merry Wives of Windsor.
“The Our Own Playreading Series is such a special part of our programming,” says Producing Artistic Director Meg Taintor. “It gives local community members the chance to work with and learn from our visiting artists – and it allows us to explore scripts that interact with our community in new ways. Thomas’ play about a small Welsh fishing village has beautiful moments that will resonate not only with our town, but with all of coastal Maine.”
Tickets for this special performance are only $8 and available at the door the night of the performance. Island Students Free. For more information please go to http://www.operahousearts.org.
