See a show at the Maine State Music Theatre

Written by: Aimsel Ponti

The Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick was opened in 1959 by Victoria Crandall. Back then it was called the Brunswick Summer Playhouse and the first show was “The Song of Norway.”  The name changed to the Maine State Music Theatre in 1967 and from June into August they present a delightful series of  first-rate productions that have been dazzling audiences for decades.  As an added bonus, if you see a show there you get to explore the charming town of Brunswick.
