Maine State Music Theatre Yard Sale 04/30/23 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Maine State Music Theatre Yard Sale

It’s back! The Maine State Music Theatre Yard Sale is returning for a second year after its successful 2022 inaugural event. Directly benefiting the MSMT Turn up the Limelight Campaign, the second annual sale is an all-volunteer produced event geared to raise funds for increasing production costs. The two-day sale will take place rain or shine in the MSMT Production Center on 22 Elm Street in Brunswick on Saturday, April 29th from 9 AM – 2 PM and Sunday, April 20th from 9 AM – 12 PM. A special Preview Sale will be held on Thursday, April 27th from 5 PM – 7 PM with a $20 admission fee payable at the door.

Have something that you want to donate to MSMT to sell for this cause? MSMT is gratefully accepting all gently-used items every Wednesday and Saturday from 10 AM – 12 PM through April 15th, also at the Production Center on Elm Street.

The MSMT Turn up the Limelight Campaign needs to raise $500,000 this year to cover increasing production, supplies and labor costs. For instance, every year MSMT hires over 200 seasonal staff members, 95% of which receive housing in Brunswick as part of their contract. The cost of lighting equipment alone can run $20,000 per show alone; royalties to secure the rights for the musicals is generally $115,000 per show. MSMT is fortunate to have the support of individuals, corporations, governmental entities and granting organizations alike, while also relying on year-round fundraisers such as the 2nd Annual Yard Sale to meet the budget.

For more information on the Yard Sale, or make a gift to MSMT, please email or call 207-725-0150.

This event will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the church’s sanctuary located at 217 Maine Street in Brunswick.
“We are very fortunate to have a person of Andy’s caliber and experience level speak on this very timely topic,” Rev, John Allen, Senior Pastor of First Parish,” and we are delighted to be able to share this opportunity with the mid-coast communities.”

Since 2012, Dr. Rudalevige has served as the Thomas Brackett Reed Professor of
Government and Legal Studies at Bowdoin. His most recent book, By Executive Order:
Bureaucratic Management and the Limits of Presidential Power (Princeton University Press),

of as “unilateral.”  By Executive Order won the Richard E. Neustadt Prize from the American
Political Science Association honoring the best book on the presidency as well as the Louis
Brownlow Prize as best book in public administration from the National Academy of Public

He is the author of four other books and scores of journal articles and essays. He has also
been a featured speaker at various conferences, and has collaborated with organizations
such as Maine Public Broadcasting on a fifteen part video series entitles “Founding
Principles.” He holds a BA degree from the University of Chicago, and MA and PhD degrees
from Harvard University.

This annual event honors the Adams Society membership made up of friends who have made
gifts to First Parish Church through their estate plans.
