We have been season ticket holders for seven years and always find our Sunday matinees a treat. This Sunday's performance was beyond great. We had seen this play 5 years ago here, but this year's performance far surpassed it in excellence. We should point out the the woman who played Eponine and Curt Dale Clark who played Jaevert stood out... More

We subscribe to the Maine State Music Theater every summer that features excellently produced, directed, and choreographed imports from Broadway using Equity performers and local talent. The Pickard Theater is a beautiful venue; intimate, comfortable and well worth a visit in summer or winter.

Never having seen them before I wasn't sure what to expect. I was entertained for 1 1/2 hours by four entertaining and talented individuals, all who sing really very good... More

We have subscribed the Maine State Music Theatre -- an Equity company staging 4 regular shows, plus 3-5 extra events, per summer -- for eight summer seasons now. IF you can get a ticket, you'll see an energetic production with very talented performers. Pickard Theater's stage is not Broadway-sized so the staging is always interesting. Their musical accompaniment is first... More

Pickard Theatre is the home for Maine State Music Theatre, a professional stock musical theatre company. (They are not affiliated with Bowdoin College.) Their first show this summer was a world premiere of Frank Loesser's Hans Christian Andersen. It was a truly wonderful show with beautiful sets, amazing costumes and the performers, well, they're the best I've seen in regional... More
