Burt Dow, Deep Water Man at Stoningtons Opera House’

Went to see this amazing, original show last night.  There’s one more performance tomorrow at 2PM.  Read more or order tickets on line here. This is truly a not-to-be-missed show!

Opera House Arts commissioned Maia Aprahamian to write the script. Directed by Joan Jubett, this is an original children’s opera version of the beloved book by Robert McCloskey. Equity performers from Portland, ME and NYC, including Daniel Noel as Burt Dow, lead a combined professional and community children’s chorus.

Local students helped to compose music and lyrics; and helped build fantastic props for the show with sculptor Michael Stasiuk. The set designer is David Barber, the costume designer is Deborah Otte and the lighting designer is Barbara Samuels.

Don’t miss it!  Let’s hope that OHA brings it back next summer…
