Stonington is one of the shining stars of the performing arts in Maine thanks to the STONINGTON OPERA HOUSE (OPERA HOUSE ARTS). Located in the downtown village area next to all the restaurants, inns, galleries, and shops. This 100 year old theater is open year round. Opera House Arts shows current/first run films and classic favorites; produces both familiar plays and orginal productions featuring both professional and local actors; hosts an eclectic mix of muscial artists in concert; and informs and engages us with interesting lectures. Often their shows and events are given in conjunction with package discounts to local restaurants and inns/motels. People come from near and far to be entertained at the Opera House!
