Ragtime in Broadway RAGTIME
The Ogunquit Playhouse
8/2-8/26/2017
AUG 2 - AUG 26 At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing... and anything is possible. This sweeping musical portrait of early twentieth-century America tells the story of three families in the pursuit of the American Dream. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair... and what it means to live in America. Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, Ragtime is the winner of three 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Called by Time Magazine “a triumph for the stage,” “Intoxicating” by the Associated Press, and "Explosive and thrilling!” by Bloomberg News, this acclaimed musical is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other musical.

Henry IV in Broadway HENRY IV
Opera House Arts
8/17-8/27/2017
War is coming. It’s been a year since Henry IV gained his throne, and the King is not having an easy time of it. Rebellion is brewing: his former allies have banded together with some of his worst enemies and are working against him. Not only that, but his heir, Hal, is happiest hanging out in taverns with petty thieves, drunkards, and the gloriously dissolute Falstaff. Shuttling between dingy alehouse and cloistered court, HENRY IV chronicles Prince Hal’s moving journey as a prodigal son who must learn to become a man and a king. This production, laced with live music, dance and furious battle scenes, features six actors playing more than thirty roles in a fast-paced adaptation of the Bard’s most popular play during his lifetime.

One Way Trip to Mars in Broadway ONE WAY TRIP TO MARS
Waterville Opera House
8/24-8/27/2017
Making its world premiere at the Waterville Opera House, "One Way Trip To Mars" features 21 original songs by Maine musicians Peter Alexander and Johannah Harkness. Directed by Dennis St. Pierre, the show tells a fictional story about Paolo, the first human chosen to fly a solo, one-way mission to establish a human colony on Mars. The performance takes audiences on an emotional rollercoaster, from Paolo’s exuberance at being chosen for the mission, to his coming to grips with the reality of forever leaving behind his wife and everything he loves on earth. When catastrophic events on earth cause communication links with Mars to go down, Paolo is left alone in the universe. From there the story accelerates to its dramatic conclusion. Tickets: $24 adults, $22 seniors and students. Tickets go on sale May 12 at www.operahouse.org. FMI onewaytriptomars.org.

The Boys Next Door in Broadway THE BOYS NEXT DOOR
Some Theatre Company
8/25-9/2/2017
Barry thinks hes a golf pro. Norman cant stop eating doughnuts. Arnold has decided hes going to move to Russia and Lucien is concerned that they dont have any trees. Written with extraordinary humor and compassion, The Boys Next Door, by Tom Griffin, is a delightful and touching picture of life, friendship and challenges. The four "boys" always "tell it like it is," they don't need anyone to tell them how or when to express their feelings. In this time of cynicism, there is an honesty and sincerity about these men that will stay with you long after the play ends. Filled with hilarity, the play is also marked by a deep care and understanding as it touchingly communicates that these four men are just like everybody else who just wants to love and be loved while finding some meaning and purpose in their lives. SHOW TIME INFO: Friday, Aug 25th: 7.30pm Saturday, Aug 26th: 2pm & 7.30pm Friday Sept 1st: 7.30pm Saturday Sept 2nd: 2pm & 7.30pm TICKETS ALSO AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR: Cash or check only.
