Celebrating Our 43rd Year!
There are no upcoming events at this time.
Dear Friend of OPA,
This is to bring you up to date on the current status of OPA performances.
OPA’s 20th Annual Classic Film Series, which was slated to begin on November 1st, has been suspended due to pandemic restrictions. Film screenings will resume on the first Sunday afternoon of each month at 2 pm, as soon as restrictions are lifted, and audience safety can be assured. See below for the list of film screenings through May, and watch our website for any further cancellations. Cancelled films will be rescheduled for the following year.
Meantime, OPA is booking artists for next year, and working with the Town of Ogunquit to facilitate an ongoing project to upgrade and improve the Dunaway Center Auditorium as a performance venue. Over the past decade, OPA and the Town have worked together to install new lighting sconces in the Auditorium itself, new stage curtains, expanded sound system, and a new stage floor.
Currently, we are working to complete the installation of a new onstage lighting system. The system will feature LED fixtures, providing the latest in stage illumination, and including control panels with pre-set capabilities, color changes by remote control, and savings in electrical usage.
If the restrictions on indoor gatherings have been lifted by then, OPA plans to feature the new lighting system and resume its 2020-21 Live Performance Schedule with a March 6 appearance by the Stillson School of Irish Dance, a beloved tradition in Ogunquit. Additional artists already booked for 2021 include jazz guitarists Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo, Maine Humorist Tim Sample, chamber music musicians Bruce Coppock and Randall Hodgkinson, and pianist Frederick Moyer, to name a few.
The OPA Committee deeply regrets this extended interruption in our performance schedule, and misses presenting to all of you the finest in performing artists. We hope you are staying well and safe, and that we can all be together again in the very near future.
