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 30th 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.
