2020 - 2021
Maine West Drama offers an array of opportunities for students interested in performance, design and leadership. Although most enter our program with little to no experience, we train them to embrace creative risk, find their voice and communicate with confidence; skills that will take them far beyond the Maine West stage.
We welcome students from all backgrounds and respect the rich diversity of their experiences and perspectives. Through rigorous training, and a spirit of collaboration, our students produce compelling works of art that move audiences to think, feel, and re-imagine the world as they know it.

THE LARAMIE PROJECT
By Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project
AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING
"The Laramie Project" is a docudrama exploring the aftermath of the murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, WY in 1998. Based on more than 200 hours of interviews, this compelling story reveals the complicated ways in which people respond to injustice. It sparked a national debate about the mistreatment of marginalized communities and whether those who refuse to speak out are complicit - a debate that continues to this day.
THEORY of Relativity
