Do you have parking space for 30 ft RV? I see a camp sight close to the theatre. I am not towing a small vehicle, so will have to drive RV to theatre. Thank you

Hi, parking for your RV will be no problem, we have a large spacious lot with plenty of room for up to five large coach busses and plenty of cars.
We're looking at a short trip to Boothbay for the Labour Day holiday, and I was wond'ring what you have on the playbill?

As has been said above, we have no more matinees scheduled for September. We have had at least one lunchtime show for each of the three shows we produced this summer, and plan on doing that again next summer.
