This theater is so small that even in the next to the last row of the balcony we felt like we were part of the action. Their production of Sister Act was fun. Parking was difficult and it was hard to find the building since we had never been there before. Beware that the Elm St address is not where... More

A week ago while visiting relatives, we attended the musical, Sister Act, at the Pickard Theater on the beautiful Bowdoin College campus. For the reasonable price of $65.00 per ticket, we were treated to a professional performance by the Maine State Music Theater actors that was both entertaining and very enjoyable. For people living in the area, season (summer) tickets... More

The Pickard Theatre, home of the Maine State Music Theater is well run and comfortable. Part of the beautiful Bowdoin College campus, it is a treat just visiting. The shows are excellent delivering many cast members direct from Broadway shows. We enjoyed many shows here and this year bought season tix. The Full Monty is the first show this season... More

I have been to many shows at this theatre, some of them were excellent some were sub par, but overall they have been good shows. They do use far too much foul language in the shows for my taste and use it where it was not necessary for the plot. Some of the singing is substandard but most at least... More

Each summer we spend a month at our cottage in nearby Bath. We always get tickets to whatever summer musical is playing at Maine State Music Theatre on the campus of Bowdoin College. In past years we've seen Gypsy, Xanadu and Legally Blonde, to name a few. This summer we saw 7 Brides for & Brothers. In all honesty, it... More

This was out second time to the Maine State Music Theatre, and we were again impressed with the quality of the play! The actors, the set, the costuming were all superb. Unfortunately we live too far to attend on a regular basis, otherwise we'd be season ticket holders. The performance was sold out, so recommend you get tickets early.

The talent and production values at this regional theater rival New York. I saw "7 Brides" and "Footloose" and was blown away. what a little gem tucked away in the mid coast of Maine.

I kid you not. After seeing four different shows at MSMT I am convinced that local theatre is where it's at. And you don't have to be local to love it. You will come back again and again, if you aren't here year round. Equity actors at reasonable prices. What more could you ask? "Footloose" was a wonderful season-ender. After... More

We had tickets for two evenings to the theatre. Godspell in Concert and 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. We could have sat through these two shows over and over. The talent is outstanding. Impressive dancing to say the least and set design was professional. Should add that they have the best seats … comfortable with plenty of leg room!!! Ticket... More
