News & Events

As You Like It | April 17-26, 2015
USM's presentation of As You Like It is the first production in Maine to be fully ASL shadowed. ASL shadow-signed productions offer deaf and hard-of-hearing audience members the experience of theater without having to watch a sole interpreter on the side of the stage. The roles of the ASL shadow interpreters are equal to those of the actors, and they are integrated seamlessly into the story.
Catch Me If You Can: March 13-22
The fast-paced musical features a score of infectious, hard-driving jazz and glorious big-band sound by the dream team behind the Tony Award-winning musical, “Hairspray,” and NBC’s musical drama, “Smash.”
USM Theatre Presents Durang’s Satirical One-Acts at Portland Stage Studio Theater
“Christopher Durang writes stingingly funny plays that often parody or satirize American artistic, cultural, and religious icons." - William Steele, director and Professor of Theatre
