Summer Theater in Maine

Maine has a proud and long tradition of offering some of the best theater to be had.  It happens in the summer, in one of the many lovingly created and supported venues across the State.


Wayne is blessed with The Theater at Monmouth, right down the lake. It is a summer stock theater that mounts New York caliber shows all summer long. They always include a Shakespeare production and a children’s play each season. Here is a link
