What can be better than summer in Maine AND fabulous music theater? Brunswick is adorable with great shops and restaurants. A beautiful green in town center is a perfect place to relax with a lobster roll from the food truck! And up the hill is a wonderful theater with amazing regional theater performances. The quality of the cast and costumes... More

Best theater in the area by far!! They had terrific plays this year and it's looking even better for 2016. My husband and I are so excited to have season tickets. The theater is nicely air conditioned and very comfortable. There isn't a bad seat in the house!!

We saw Young Frankenstein - it was terrific! The cast and was good or better than I a accustomed to seeing at much large venues in Florida. The acoustics were great and there are no bad seats I this theatre. Get there early as there is no parking next to the theater and you will have to walk a bit.

We have been season's ticket holders for ten or more years. Except for the most recent two years that has meant a drive of 60 miles round trip to attend this summer theater. Now we can walk to the theater. MSMT attracts talent from New York as well as local talent and always does an excellent job of presenting the... More

This music theater is Broadway worthy. We just saw Young Frankenstein and it was hilariously wonderful. We've seen a few other plays there and they have all be just as good. Now, NYC is a great place to visit, but for musical theater, you can have it all right here. Beware, for directions you want to head to Pickard Theater,... More

We saw The Music Man and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Prices were very reasonable, seats comfortable and staff very helpful. Would consider it again if we are in the area again.

We saw Music Man and were blown away with the production. The sets, the cast, the orchestra - all were top-notch. We had been here last year when we visited the area and had the same reaction.

took a chance on getting tickets online. We were spending only one day and there's a lot to do in Brunswick. Thank goodness we went to the theater because it was a super production! The theater is a great venue, the actors, scenery and staging were superb!

What a find! A beautiful theater on the picturesque campus of Bowdoin College. The best part though was the excellent production we saw! The Music Man has been done so many times but this show was fun, fresh and all the performers were tip top quality. There's a lot of quaint lodging in the area and good restaurants too so... More
