Happy New Year - and thank you!!!

Dear friend,


What a year for the Opera House! A whirlwind of art and music and community and learning!

For the Opera House, 2015 was a year of transition, with the completion of the new scene shop and lobby (and all those beautiful bathrooms, of course!) and my own arrival as the new director for this wonderful organization. And throughout this year of change and growth, it has been your support that has made it possible.

Did you attend a film this year? Join us each Wednesday in the summer for Live for $5? Have you performed at one of our Open Mic nights in the newly-minted Live in the Lobby series? Did you marvel at Chekhov by the seashore or Shakespeare in Stonington? Dance in your seat at the Jazz Festival? Did you give us a gift towards either our annual fund or our capital campaign? Act in one of our Community Staged Readings? Join us for a conversation in the lobby? Get your picture taken with Santa?

Whatever your points of interaction with us have been, it is your engagement with the Opera House that makes our work possible. Thank you.


In 2016, we’re continuing our growth, with increased winter programming through our newly launched
Harbor Residency Program, our continuing community partnerships with the Island Nursing Home, the Town of Stonington and the Island Community Center, more Community Staged Readings, and of course, our expanded exciting summer season!

If you can support us with a year-end gift, that will help all those programs. Make you gift online today.

Opera House Arts has always and continues to use the performing arts to foster and promote excellence in all the ways we perform our lives: Incite Art. Create Community. Thank YOU for being a pivotal part of that community.
