The Theater Project was founded in 1971 as a non-profit community-based theater in Brunswick, Maine. For over 43 years we have provided innovative, entertaining performances, designed programming for members of our community with special needs, and taught theater to thousands of children from Maine to the Middle East and beyond. 

The Theater Project is committed to offering the community stimulating performances that encourage audiences and participants to think and feel, to laugh and cry. We are equally committed to an educational program that enables participants to take risks, to discover their creative spirit while problem solving and working together, and to take responsibility for what they accomplish. 

Our main goal as educators is to introduce basic acting techniques, but more importantly, to express and explain the significance of working together as a group. We want to demonstrate that everyone is important to making a show or a class a success. For us, it's not about the product; it's about the process. Using well-known books as a vehicle to introduce theater games and exercises, each class will come up with their interpretation of the stories.
