Lift Truck Campaign

At the end of our 2018 season, Maine State Music Theatre did an ask from the stage to raise funds to replace our vintage 1970s lift truck (affectionately known as “The Green Monster”), picture at right during 2018.

Beyond the truck simply being nearly 50 years old, the “Green Monster” is mechanically unreliable, often shutting down at times in the outstretched position. At its highest position there are no tipping supports and, because of its age, there are no replacement parts for it. The safety of our summer company is of the utmost importance and the truck must be replaced. Without a replacement truck, it will be impossible for our team to load sets into the Pickard.

Thanks to the generosity of our audience, we raised $41,987 – half of our goal – toward buying a safer lift truck that our technical staff will be able to use for many years to come.

We couldn’t bring Broadway to Brunswick every summer without YOU, and we are continually thankful for having such amazing patrons.
