While we didn't have dinner there, we did have desert while we were serenaded by five young singers and actors freshly out of college and eager to make it to Broadway. At least two will too. After rotating between singing broadway hits and serving the patrons, the show began... an Elvis inspired story of the King in Camelot and his... More

This was our first time at the Carousel and we were so glad we chose it. The entertainers were so good and so professional. The skit was kind of silly, but it was good for a few laughs! The singers all had wonderful voices and sang as they waited on the tables. It was a very memorable experience..

Loved the entertainment! During dinner, the staff sings show tunes. The show this summer is a fairy tale/Elvis infusion. The staff/entertainers are super fun and friendly, and make everyone feel welcome. My hummus cucumber sandwich was inedible (it was also missing cucumbers) but the flourless chocolate cake was the best ever! My friend's chicken salad sandwich was very good, and... More

AWL My wife and I have been coming to Boothbay Harbor for many years, yet this was our first visit to the Carousel Music Theater. we chose the "show only" option, but did enjoy the desert that came with the show. We enjoyed the show very much and most likely will revisit the theater on our next visit to Boothbay... More

My husband and I recently experienced a wonderful evening of "Broadway" entertainment at the Carousel Music Theater. The performers were also our servers and each of the five were pleasant and conversant. The talent of the five performers was topshelf and they provided us with fabulous Gershwin songs and an enjoyable Elvis Review. The lobster roll and fish chowder was... More

Love the Music, food, atmosphere. Casual and so enjoyable for all ages. I go every year at least once, all three shows if I can schedule in such a short summer.

This is our second year coming to the Carousel. We promote this gem of a local venue to everyone we meet! It is one of the things we look forward to when we visit Boothbay each summer. Such big talent in a small intimate venue. Everyone performs with passion and energy and we love Sara (no h) Lee too! Can't... More

Very well performed. A wonderful cast/staff. It may be off off off broadway, but they gave a performance worthy of a Broadway cast. Dinner was a delight. Hey don't look for a NY Steak but the Lobster Roll was awesome. I've been to so many shows on n off Broadway and this was fun and made you feel great. Singing... More
