We've been regular MSMT goers for years. The local productions are complimented with road companies and original works; giving us the best of all three. We've seen superb productions of FIDDLER, EVITA, and LES MISERABLES. The Theater seating, except for corners gives one excellent visibility; and the sound system is superb as are musicians. Within a 15 min. walk are... More

MSMT is a summer theatre offering 4 musicals each year at the Pickard Theater on the beautiful campus of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME -- each for about a 3-week run. I spend summers in Maine, have been attending their shows for over 10 years and am thrilled with the quality of their productions year in and year out. I'm... More

The fact that almost every performance is sold out, is why you want to get your tickets early! The children and young adult shows are great.

We went to the matinee performance of Mamma Mia yesterday with friends. Because of the popularity of this venue, we couldn't get 4 seats together even though we ordered in May. So order your tickets early, especially for matinees. Our seats were wonderful-- lots of leg and seat room---the performance was top quality and the theater nicely air conditioned. The... More

Each summer, they put on four musicals. A range of old favorites and newer, lesser known, shows. Actors are quite professional, with a range of acting credits (Broadway, Off Broadway, national tours, regional). The sets are terrific. The theater has been nicely renovated. Summer in Maine. What's not to like?

The Maine State Music Theatre at the Pickard Theater on the campus of Bowdoin College in Brunswick Maine offers a very popular and professional theater experience. They offer a short season of four musicals each year. We had the opportunity to attend a production of Fiddler on the Roof. The talent, costumes and sets were all first rate. With its... More

Summers in Maine offer live theater on the Bowdoin Campus in a modern venue in a stately campus building. The July offering was "Fiddler" and the quality of the singing and the production was very enjoyable. There are usually 3 different production during the summer months. Many restaurants in Brunswick so you can make an night of it. Brunswick is... More

This time we went to see "Ghost - The Musical". This was a reconfiguration of the attempt that didn't fare well on Broadway. It was redesigned for accoustic music and simple sets, which this theater does so very well. It was wonderfully done. This theater can be fun just watching how they get the absolute most out of creatively flexible... More
