Building upon a legacy of leadership in American theatre, the Ogunquit Playhouse produces world-class performances, cultivates new works for the stage, and preserves an iconic and historic playhouse for future generations.
Home to world-class theatre, Ogunquit Playhouse has an 89 year legacy of creating top-notch productions complete with professional casts and creative teams, and stars of screen and stage, hand-picked for each production.
On a warm summer evening in 1933, from a renovated garage in Ogunquit’s town square, Ogunquit Playhouse opened its doors for the first time. The next 85 years would see the theatre grow into a renowned and lauded regional theatre: earning national and international recognition for its productions, in addition to having the historic building deemed a structure of National Significance on the National Register of Historic Places.
Today, Ogunquit Playhouse has grown from a 10-week summer theatre to a true regional theatre, producing between five and seven musicals annually over a 24-week period on its own stage, as well as a holiday show at The Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH for an additional four weeks.
