Shakespeare Directed by Peter Brown, director of Fenix Theatre's celebrated "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings July 17th to August 9th at 6:30pm except Saturday July 26, we will be performing on SUNDAY July 27th at 6:30pm instead. All performances are in the wading pool and ravine area of Deering Oaks in Portland Maine, all shows are FREE to the Public! Fenix Theatre Co./ Shakespeare in the Park encourages you to bring a blanket or lawn chair, some food and beverage and bug spray. Please come early and SIT CLOSE, actors are not amplified (we can't afford it) and we usually get a lot of folks coming to see the shows so the earlier you get there the better seating you'll get. As You Like It is one of the great comedy plays by William Shakespeare. The heroine Rosalind, one of his most inspiring characters, is the daughter of a banished duke who falls in love with Orlando the disinherited son of one of the duke's friends. When she is banished from the court by her usurping uncle, Duke Frederick , Rosalind takes on the appearance of a boy calling herself Ganymede. She travels with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone to the Forest of Arden, where her father and his friends live in exile. Themes about life and love, including aging, the natural world, and death are included in the play. New friends are made and families are reunited, love happens and we all have a wonderful night of theatre in our beautiful park.

Now Playing Onstage in Maine - Week of 8/03/2014 A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING
Quisisana
6/19-8/21/2014
Taste and imagination, the two key ingredients for a first-rate revue, abound in this fresh take on the Rodgers & Hammerstein canon conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie. Over three decades after the duo's final collaboration, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, took the Great White Way by storm, it was in fact this new R&H musical that opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices as well as earning two Tony nominations, including Best Musical. Here at R&H, our founding fathers probably never imagined 'Shall We Dance?' as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer, nor did they suspect that one day a lovelorn young lad might pose the musical question, 'How do you solve a problem like Maria?' But that's precisely the kind of invention lavished upon this new revue, with innovative musical arrangements including a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair,' a swingin' 'Honeybun' worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy 'Kansas City' which leaves no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Music Arrangements by Fred Wells; Conceived By Walter Bobbie

Maine State Music Theatre
8/6-8/23/2014
One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the Pickard stage with this exhilarating show. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

Now Playing Onstage in Maine - Week of 8/03/2014 CHILDREN OF EDEN
BOOTHBAY PLAYHOUSE
8/6-8/23/2014
From Stephen Schwartz and John Caird comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business! Freely based on the story of Genesis, CHILDREN OF EDEN is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the "Father" who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that "the hardest part of love... is letting go."A large cast is needed to take on the story of the Old Testament in this moving, foot-stomping musical. CHILDREN OF EDEN is a wonderful show to perform for children and students.
