Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Emma Rosa Went, will be performed outdoors, continuing the Opera House’s tradition of inventive, site-specific theatre. The production includes live music by folk composer Ray Duncan. With its themes of redemption and collective growth, the production celebrates our abiding love for one another and shared connection even through trying times.

Named for the brave men of the Island who lost their lives at sea, this park has beautiful gardens and gentle paths circling fields and leading down to the shore of Long Cove. A broad upland meadow fringed with woods stretches from the park’s entrance to the shore. To access the park, turn off Route 15 onto Sunshine Road. Take your immediate right onto Morey Farm Lane and take a left at the gate with a sign for the park. 

Parking & Accessibility

Parking is available, though we encourage carpooling. The performance area is just a short distance from the parking area. Chairs are provided for seating on the lawn where the play will take place. Patrons with limited mobility can be dropped off very close to the performance area, and a few parking spots will be reserved for those with handicap permits.
