I have lived in Maine almost 30 years and only recently visited this theater. The building is amazing. Beautiful reconstruction of an old theater. The shows are inspired community theater. This is a "must see" when you are in Maine or have visitors.

The plays are VERY well done! It's worth the trip to see such great theatre! You won't be disappointed! Cumston Hall is a wonderful venue--both for its beauty and history, and its size as a theatre. Every seat is good.

The character of Cumston Hall oozes out the windows when one goes there to see a show. It does not matter if it is a professional company or community players - they all are great in their own fashion. A must see theater if anyone...More
