We are spending 4 days in Ogunquit in July. I was looking at the playhouse website and saw that they have shows on during our visit. Is it worth taking in an evening show while we are there and do you have to book in advance.

Are the productions of a good class or is it just a small town type show ??

I would absolutely recommend taking in a show during your visit. This is an historic playhouse and is true summer stock, i.e. the actors are well-known people in their profession---known throughout the country.

The theatre is small and old, which is part of its charm. It's lovely to have a glass of champagne out in the garden beforehand or during the interval. I strongly recommend you book in advance, most shows do get sold out.

The Ogunquit Playhouse will celebrate it's 75th Birthday this summer. The Playhouse is on the register of Historic Buildings and a gem! The plays, not of the caliber the 50's and 60's , are improving and do have a professional cast! Sally Struthers usually comes each summer.

If you are into History, Ogunquit has a Heritage Museum in an 1780 Cape Cod. It is located on Obeds Lane on the Dorothea Jacobs Grant Common, a tranquit place is busy Ogunquit, 2 streets north of the playhouse.. There are many items from Ogunquit's early history including the fishing industrys beginning, the background of the artists colony and schools and the tourist industry as well as a lobster shack and trappings. The main exhibit this summer will cover the history of the Playhouse. Also go to the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, beyond Perkins Cove--another gem overlooking the ocean.

The Heritage Museum is open June through september 1 to 5pm, Tuesdays through Saturday.!

I've Booked the Show. An interesting point to note is that when I tried to book on-line my request was rejected as I do not have a US zip - code. I eventually booked it by phone and received confirmation by e-mail.
