Our Programs.

Opera House Arts

We offer a year-round schedule of professional theatre, music, film, dance, community events, and more. Opera House Arts’ programs serve all of Hancock County’s winter and summer residents and visitors, with a special emphasis on the residents of Deer Isle and the Blue Hill peninsula.

Our two mainstage shows in 2024 — Salvage and Cyrano — are made possible by a generous grant from the Anahata Foundation.

This summer’s special presentation of Robert Frost: This Verse Business is made possible by Ray and Judy McCaskey.

Live! For $5 performances are funded each year by the W.F. Whitman Family Foundation, in honor of Maia Aprahamian.

The 24th Annual Deer Isle Jazz Festival is funded in part by the ongoing generosity of Rich and Mary Howe, joined this year by Liz and George Zentz.

Opera House Arts is grateful for general operations support from the Maine Arts Commission, Maine Community Foundation, the Onion Foundation and the Town of Stonington, Maine as well as many friends and donors — and people like you!  Thank you. We’re also funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Opera House Arts employs the performing arts to foster and promote excellence in all the ways we perform our lives: Incite Art, Create Community.
