Maine State Music Theatre Announces 60th Anniversary; Tickets On Sale 4/25

Tickets for Maine State Music Theatre's 2018 season will go on sale at midnight on April 24, 2018. There is already a limited number of single tickets available. Buying early is recommended.

The first show of the season rolls in June 6 - 23 with a high dose of rock and roll. Elvis Presley... Johnny Cash... Jerry Lee Lewis... Carl Perkins - a historic quartet brought together by an extraordinary twist of fate on a December evening in 1956. This meeting at Sun Records would become one of the greatest jam sessions ever in Million Dollar Quartet.

The second show ushers in a beloved fairytale - a timeless family favorite - and is one of the largest of the season, with expansive sets, beautifully crafted costumes, a large chorus with a robust sound, and more! Disney's Beauty and the Beast comes to Brunswick on June 27 - July 14.

Positioned in the third slot of the season Saturday Night Fever brings the music of The Bee Gees back in full force July 18 - August 4. Based on the 1977 blockbuster film, Saturday Night Fever whisks you back to the 1970s, where open shirts, bell-bottoms, and disco were all the rage.

Closing the Diamond Jubilee season on the Pickard Stage August 8 - 25 is Singin' in the Rain - faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay for the stage. Each unforgettable scene, song, and dance is accounted for, including the show-stopping title number! Singin' in the Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline - the starlet, the leading man, and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers.

In addition to its main stage shows, MSMT will offer a Monday Performance Series. For the first time ever, this series is also offered as a subscription. First up on Monday June 18 is I Love a Piano, the celebration of the music and lyrics of Irving Berlin. On Monday, July 30 is a loving send-up of the 1960s, small-town America: Bye Bye Birdie. Ending the season's Concert Series on August 13 is The Best of MSMT, a celebration of MSMT's last 60 years as we welcome audiences favorite Maine State Music Theatre performers - past and present - as they present a star-studded tribute to the past six decades of bringing "Broadway to Brunswick."

Theatre for Young Audiences shows for 2018 include Cinderella on June 13 and 16 and Pinocchio on August 20.

Maine State Music Theatre's 2018 Season is sponsored by Highland Green and OceanView at Falmouth.
