MaineStage Shakespeare

MaineStage Shakespeare is a nonprofit theater company presenting its fifth season in the summer of 2015. They are comprised of young, passionate theater artists from around the country who share the goal of fostering an influential resident Shakespeare company right here in Kennebunk, ME. 
The company is comprised of twelve actors and seven staff, many of whom are returning to Southern Maine for a second or even fifth season. Wherever they’re from, they are united by the common goal of creating accessible, professional, classical theater for a wide audience of adults and children alike, and to the ideal of a resident theater company that enriches both the artists who work in it and the community that makes it possible.

At MaineStage Shakespeare, they breathe new life into the classics! Join us this summer for FREE performances of professional, innovative Shakespeare in the Kennebunks. Grab a blanket, pack a picnic, throw away your preconceptions, and bring the whole family!

All performances are fun and exciting for Shakespeare experts and beginners alike. We can't wait to see you on the MaineStage!
