Ticket Return Form

The cancellation of our season creates significant financial challenges for Maine State Music Theatre – not just for the 2020 season but for 2021. We hope you will consider a donation of all or part of your 2020 ticket purchase. If you are a subscriber, regardless of what options you choose below, you will keep your same seats for the 2021 season.  Your generosity will help us to make up for unplanned losses this year, and to plan for the future with confidence.

Please note: the Box Office must manually process each request, whether it it is a donation, gift card, or refund. Once you submit your form this request goes to the Box Office and is put into a queue for processing. You will not get an immediate call back or email response. Please be patient as our Box Office is a staff of one at this time of year and is working remotely. 

Gift card or refund requests must be made by July 17, 2020; any remaining tickets that are undesignated after July 17 will be automatically converted into a tax-deductible donation.

Kindly fill out this form, and we will process your request as quickly as possible. You may also contact the Box Office at 207-725-8769, but please remember that all of our staff is currently working remotely, so if you choose to call, be prepared to leave a message. A member of the Box Office team will return your message as soon as possible. Please also be aware that since we are working remotely, the phone number may not be the usual MSMT Box Office number. Thank you for your patience and your support!

Your tax-deductible gift will be recognized as part of the MSMT Lifeline Fund for 2020-2021. 


This year you can get greater benefit from your giving.

The new stimulus bill includes the following changes to charitable giving:

  • If you do not itemize your deductions, and give up to $300 to charity in a year, you can add up to $300 to the standard deduction. This is an above-the-line deduction, which means it has the added bonus of decreasing your adjusted gross income so you could qualify for other tax breaks. In order to qualify, you have to give to a qualified charity, which does not include a donor advised charitable fund. This covers all of 2020 and the years to come. Section 2204.

  • If you itemize your deductions, for 2020 you can now deduct 100% of your charitable contributions from your adjusted gross income (up from the previous 50% cap). If you have a business, the 10% limit has been increased to 25%. This only applies to cash gifts to public charities and is not applicable to private foundations or donor advised funds. Though donor advised funds are managed through public charities, you do not get a higher deduction rate for donating cash to these funds. Section 2204.
