Time was, veteran actors and producers came to Maine theaters in the summer to take a break or test out new material while newbies came to find their big break. Summer theaters were everywhere, from lakeside villages to seaside resorts. Times have changed. But Maine’s theater tradition remains strong. One of the oldest summer theaters in the country, Lakewood, still puts on shows in its classic building in Madison. The vibrant summer-time theater circuit isn’t quite as robust as a century ago, but there’s still plenty of companies, some amateur, some professional, performing during warmer months throughout the state. And Maine’s dramatic tradition has moved beyond summer. A healthy cohort of professional theater companies organizes productions during the cooler months of the year as well.
