This Friday we begin the final preparations for Lincoln County Community Theater’s spring musical production, the Maine Premiere of the Tony nominated musical “Bright Star!” The theater will be open on Saturday, May 7 at 1 p.m. for the Met Live in HD presentation of “Turandot,” but there will be no other films or events during the next two weeks so that we may finish building the set, hanging the lights, and rehearsing all the finishing touches to bring you a sensational production! “Bright Star,” our first musical since the spring of 2019, will run for one weekend only, May 13-15. We are so excited to be staging a spring production once again and we hope you will join us for this return of musical theater to the Lincoln Theater stage.

“Bright Star” - A  Lincoln County Community Theater production live on stage Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, “Bright Star” tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and 40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tightly in its grasp.
