Since 1933 Ogunquit Playhouse has been entertaining the masses with a rich offering of musicals and plays and is considered to be one of the the country’s most popular summer theaters. We have Walter Hartwig and his wife, Maude, to thank because they were all about bringing high-quality theatrical productions to places beyond New York City, and they certainly found success in Ogunquit. The theater’s first season was the summer of 1937, and it’s been nothing less than a go-to place for theater lovers from all over. Although the bulk of its shows happen in summer, the season often stretches right into the holidays.
