Theater in the Open
Our 39th Season will be marked by a collection of original works, classical works and, of course, the fast-paced comedy of Panto! Join us for free outdoor theater in Maudslay State Park and downtown Newburyport, as well as the community-wide fundraisers that help support the arts and arts education for all.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it’s time once again for our Spring Panto! This time around we’ll be following the (mis)adventures of Jack and friends as they take the path much less traveled by, and learn some valuable lessons along the way…!!!
Saturdays & Sundays in June at 2pm
Shakespeare teaches us universal truths about humanity. In Much Ado About Nothing, we are reminded that the challenges of trying to communicate with the opposite sex and the pitfalls of stereotyping are age-old themes. Watch Beatrice and Benedick, Hero and Claudio navigate pride, trickery and hilarity on their road to love.
See Performance Calendar for July & August dates.
First performed in 431bc, Euripides' Medea is, on one level, a classical Greek tragedy about a wife who goes to extraordinary lengths to punish her unfaithful husband. Yet there are many levels worth exploring in this tale of revenge and justice, and our talented ensemble promises to take you on a though-provoking journey.
