Ah, summer – we’ve missed you. And after many months, something else that we’ve missed – the theatre – is making a triumphant return.

For those who love live theatre, there are loads of options. Companies near and far are bringing exciting work to stages all over the region; no matter where you might be, there’s a good chance that you’ve got some excellent theatre happening nearby. There’s a lot of variety out there just waiting to be experienced.

We’ve been waiting a while for this, thanks to the circumstances of the pandemic. Summer stages were largely dark last year. And not every company is quite ready to mark their return. But numerous groups are bringing their talents back over the coming weeks, giving those of us who love the theatre a chance to experience that love once again. If you choose to see a show, be sure to familiarize yourself with the company’s individual protocols – different groups will have different policies in place. Some will be outdoors, others will be inside, but all will be bringing live theatre back.

I know you’ve missed it. I’ve missed it too. So let’s all take the time to get out there and see something. One thing is for certain – there are plenty of options. Here’s a look at just some of what’s to come.

Once again, summer’s arrival is upon us. The weather is warming up and the days are approaching their greatest length. People near and far are going to descend on our state’s beaches, mountains and forests; people are going to swim and hike and boat and generally experience the outdoors in a fashion that one can only achieve in Maine.

But there are other summertime perks, too.

For those who love live theater, there are loads of options. Companies near and far are bringing exciting work to stages all over the region; no matter where you might be, there’s a good chance that you’ve got some excellent theater happening nearby.

Some of these companies are stalwarts of the scene, having been around for decades. Others are relative newcomers, bringing a new energy to the proceedings. Bangor, Belfast, Bar Harbor, Blue Hill, Brooksville – they’ve all got something for you; Orono and Ellsworth and Stonington too.

It’s well worth your time to experience some of what our area’s summer stages have to offer. Here’s a look at just some of what’s to come.
