The stars shine every night at the Ogunquit Playhouse, a theater with a rich history and an enviable reputation. Broadway professionals bring this 750-seat summer-stock theater to life from mid-May through October. Born in 1933 out of the Little Theater Movement, the current space dates from 1937 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Don’t miss attending one of the five musicals, ranging from Broadway hits to world premieres, staged each season. Insider tip: Plan ahead to book a 90-minute Behind the Scenes Tour or a 45-minute Stage Door Tour to view the greenroom, wig and sound rooms, and original dressing rooms used by luminaries including Bette Davis, Myrna Loy, and Steve McQueen.
