“Of course the pandemic was a big hit to any kind of revenue for the opera house. We have not had a show since March, and we didn’t really have any revenue coming in. And if we didn’t do any shows, it would be difficult to generate revenue through sponsorships.” According to Warner, staff at the opera house watched what the rest of the industry was doing to make up for lost revenue. “We had to wait for the industry to sort of this content figure out whether or not online theater was going to be a thing,” Warner said. Tamsen Warner works on the stage of the “Almost, Maine” production at the Waterville Opera House recently. Michael G. Seamans/Morning Sentinel The Portland Theater Company is also offering an online holiday show with a production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” available to stream from Dec. 15 to Jan. 3. According to Warner, safety was another factor staff at the opera house had to figure out before going forward with the production.
