I love the Maine State Music Theatre. It is truely one of the best and a pleasant secret of Brunswick Maine. I have been to many stage preformances in NYC and the ones at the MSMT are better for they give you an experience unlike the big city.

I bought season tickets a number of years ago and continue to subscribe each year for the sole reason that I have great seats and don't want to give them up! Of the four musicals produced each year, I attend 2 or 3 and have no trouble selling my additional ticket(s) to friends. The theater will also buy back the tickets you can't use or they will exchange for another date. Equity performers come into Maine from various professional theaters around the country, including Broadway, to provide us a rich theater experience. The acting, singing, dancing, set design, live band, and general staging of each production is first rate. MSMT has been around for many years - they recently celebrated their 50th anniversary. Located on the historical and idyllic campus of Bowdoin College, the theater is an outstanding venue. Parking can be a bit tricky - we park on the other side of the campus and walk down the main quad. Brunswick has some wonderful restaurants downtown too and we make it a full evening by going over early for dinner and then the show.

Located on the beautiful, historic campus of Bowdoin College, this summer music theater puts on first rate shows! I have been a season subscriber for many years and even if the actual play was not among my favorites, I have never thought that they didn't do a wonderful job. The productions, costumes, choreography and singing are always exceptional! The only major downside is that If anyone has trouble walking long distances, parking close by is virtually impossible. Once inside there is an elevator, but otherwise, the restrooms are downstairs and the theater is up a flight of stairs. If you attend a matinee performance, arrive early and visit Bowdoin's lovely museum of art to kill some time before the show.

This is a summertime "must do" for locals and visitors to Maine with Broadway quality musicals in a beautiful setting. There are four different shows every summer in an air conditioned building with comfortable seats. Handicapped access to main level with elevator up to boxes and down to lower level restrooms. Kiosk outside the building offers snacks and beverages (not for consumption inside theatre, however).

They offer senior and subscriber discounts. Children under age four not permitted at the main stage shows though they do a couple of special children's shows every summer.

Plan plenty of time to find parking so you won't be late - the shows start right on time.
