Performing Arts, Theater, Dance

“The Sound of Music” – Brunswick ME

Jun 8, 2022 - Jun 25, 2022 Pickard Theater, at 1 Bath Road, Brunswick, ME

During this classic family favorite, hear songs including “My Favorite Things,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “Climb Every Mountain,” and, of course, “The Sound of Music,” played live. The story follows a free-spirited postulant who is sent to be governess to the seven children of a widowed naval captain in prewar Austria.

"Lysistrata" – Monmouth ME

Jun 25, 2022 - Aug 18, 2022 796 Main Street, Monmouth, ME

On a mission to end the Peloponnesian war, Lysistrata bands together the women of Greece in a pact to withhold sex until the men declare peace. As the women tantalize and tease their way to a cease-fire, a timeless story emerges of sexual politics, political power struggles, and the battle between the sexes. Funny, poignant, and a little dirty, Lysistrata is a comic romp of more than adequate proportions. See the website for a detailed performance schedule.
