There’s still a little time left!  Please join us on Tuesdays at 7:oo pm for our rehearsals.  We are still learning “Trial”, and several numbers from a variety of G&S shows.  Location: MAINE COAST BAPTIST CHURCH, Bangor Road (Rte 1A), just North of Ellsworth.

Get the vocal score or a 1927 or 1949 D’Oyly Carte recording of the show via links from our Calendar & Cast page.

Many thanks to the pastor and congregation of the Maine Coast Baptist Church for allowing us the use of their Fellowship Hall.  We are very grateful!


Planning Our Season!

We know everyone is curious about our upcoming season.  We don’t mean to keep you in suspense, but we are wrestling with financial issues (like most arts organizations) and trying to plan the best approach for the coming year.

We promise we’ll let you know VERY soon when and what you can expect to start rehearsing!  Until then, please keep an evening free for us, and go ahead and send an email if you have questions or suggestions!

This is a pot-luck and very fun and informal!  Please come, bring something yummy to share, bring a family member or friend who may be interested in joining us, and be prepared in case singing breaks out!!  Here is a map to the location:  Please do not park in or alongside the driveway!  Please park along Harbor View Drive and walk to the house!
