The Opera House Players is the first community theater in Connecticut to present Bright Star.

Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40’s.

When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and when she finds has the power to transform both their lives. The story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshing genuine as it is daringly hopeful.

This production of Bright Star features a cast of local actors with director John Pike, musical direction by Kim Aliczi, and choreography by Hannah Gundersheim. Tickets available by calling the box office at 860-292-6068 or visiting . Tickets: $23 (adults) and $19 (seniors, children under 12, students with valid id). Group discount available for groups of 15 or more. Flex passes and gift certificates also available.

Seeking Fundraising Volunteers
With A Passion For The Arts!
Having spent our first full year back in Enfield, we are already feeling like we never left. We certainly celebrated our 50th year with a bang by selling about 5,000 tickets for just three productions!

As you know, we are temporarily using The Annex (former Fermi High School) for our performances, pending the renovation of our new home at 100 High Street which requires raising a significant amount of funding. We have embarked in an aggressive grant application campaign, but we lack enough volunteers to help us with donations from local businesses, individuals, and organizations. What we need most of all is people that have the time, interest, and perhaps experience to help us attract donations.

If you have the time, and the interest to help us track down potential donors, we would love to hear from you. If you have experience in this sort of thing, you know what it takes. If you don’t have the experience, we would be happy to train you. Again, all it takes is some dedicated time, passion and persistence.

If you are willing to help our fine organization, please contact:
