TYA Series

Maine State Music Theatre believes that introducing children to live theatre at an early age stimulates the imagination and engagement with stories and emotions. Through the Theatre for Young Audiences Series, we hope to inspire an appreciation for and acceptance of the wonderful diversity of life. The shows in the series star interns from our Educational Fellowship and local Maine actors. Show times are 10 AM, 1 PM, 4 PM and 7:30 PM. The TYA Series is available as a subscription, which includes all three performances, with a savings of $2 per show. Single tickets go on sale for subscribers on March 27 and to the general public on April 1, 2020.


In this Robin and Clark version of Beauty and the Beast, an acting troupe is putting on a Disney-esque production, but things are not going well. It’s up to the members of the audience to save the day. It tells the adventures of Rose, the Beauty, and Chadwick, the Beast who once was a Prince, as well as Beauty’s papa, her silly sisters, and all the other characters in an ageless story about love and beauty that comes from the heart.


The enchanting modern classic from Disney is based on the 2018 Broadway musical, and brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life, onstage. The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film, including “Let it Go,” plus five new songs written for the Broadway production!

A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, Frozen JR. expands upon the emotional relationship and journey between Princesses Anna and Elsa. When faced with danger, the two discover their hidden potential and the powerful bond of sisterhood.


Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical.  It’s a “big bright beautiful world” as everyone’s favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance.  Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
