Opera House Arts announces 22nd summer season

Opera House Arts will launch its 22nd summer season with a full lineup of live music, dance and theater beginning June 12 with the return of the popular Bud Carter Memorial Scholarship concert, benefiting music education for Deer Isle-Stonington students.

Events will continue through July and August with weekly Live for $5 intergenerational family programs, a concert appearance by Noel Paul Stookey, the 21st annual Deer Isle Jazz Festival, an Evening of Broadway. There will be a dual billing of Shakespeare in Stonington with a community playreading of Othello and a staged production of Desdemona. All shows are currently booked as outdoor performances, with the majority of these at the new Stonington Ball Field stage. Other locations will be announced.

Tickets will be on sale soon, and all, including movie tickets, must be purchased online in advance through the theater’s touchless digital ticketing systems at operahousearts.org. Questions can also be addressed by calling the Opera House box office at 367-2788. See the full schedule at the OHA website.
