The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Maine was established as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 1976. Our mission is

  • to preserve the vitality of the classic works of Gilbert and Sullivan by producing and promoting live musical theatre;
  • to develop the skill and talent of people of all ages in our cast, crew, and orchestra; and
  • to inspire, entertain and educate the community through concert performances.

With your generous support, we enjoy a tradition for more than 40 years of

  • full productions: sets, costumes, a full orchestra (24-30 pieces) and a full chorus (40-65 voices).
  • off-season concerts: Gilbert & Sullivan a la Carte performs programs from a variety of operettas at libraries, nursing homes, churches, and other small venues
  • scholarships: we sponsor a small number of young singers, covering the cost of voice lessons for a year
  • education & outreach: we work with area schools, offering a 2-3 day workshop incorporating history, musicality, and theatrical training for young people ages 10 and older
