OHA, library team up on book club
Opera House Arts and the Stonington Public Library are teaming up to offer two opportunities to dive into the texts and stories of this summer’s programming at OHA, according to a news release from OHA.
The Opera House Arts summer 2018 theatre season, which runs from June 29 to August 26, features two productions: Shakespeare’s The Tempest, (June 29-July 15), and a world premiere celebration of one of Maine’s most beloved authors I Have Seen Horizons: Ruth Moore’s Stories from Maine, (August 16-26).
Stonington Public Library will host two events in which participants will have an opportunity to read selections from the text, talk about the process of putting that text on stage, and get some peeks into the rehearsal room.
Book Club meetings last approximately 90 minutes, and light refreshments will be provided. The Tempest book club meeting is on Monday, June 11, at 4 p.m., moderated by Peter Richards (director) and Julia Sears (associate director).
I Have Seen Horizons: Ruth Moore’s Stories from Maine book club meeting is on Monday, July 30, at 4 p.m., moderated by Meg Taintor (adaptor) and Natalya Baldyga (director).
