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 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.

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.
