The North Side Project is now complete, with new clapboards and trim and flashing and sheathing we hope the elements will, finally, stay outside the Opera House. We are still raising funds to support the work done, and the work that needs to be done on the other three sides of the building. Our 1894 Society recognizes individuals and businesses who are able to make a gift of $1894 or more for the building. As a special thank you to these donors, we have a limited number of handmade boxes, made from the original Opera House clapboards, which we are happily bestowing upon our newest 1894 Society members. These small boxes, suitable for keeping Opera tickets in, or other treasures, were hand crafted by Chip Schwehm. If interested in becoming a member of the 1894 Society, please contact Opera House World Headquarters at 207-633-6855. Thanks to all for your support of this grand old community gathering place.
Welcome! This is a new look for our website. Please let us know if it’s missing any information that would be helpful to you, or if you find any glitches. Over the past few years we’ve listened as patrons have commented about having difficulty finding the calendar of performances on our website. In this version we’ve moved it all right on to the home page. We have a wonderful array of performances coming to the stage this season, please take a moment to scroll down through the current offerings and remember to visit our website often. We add programming weekly. Thank you to the team at DesignMe, a Falmouth, Maine based company that has worked with us to make the site more user-friendly.
In other news, the exterior work on the north side of the Opera House is nearly complete with only a final coat of paint needed now. Thank you to all who have made their way through the sometimes challenging construction maze to buy tickets and attend performances over these past few months. We appreciate your spirited perseverance.
