Mainstage Show

When four young singers are killed in a car crash, they posthumously take the stage for one final gig in this goofy, 1950s nostalgia trip. Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously fun revue is chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies!

Fridays and Saturdays | 7:30PM | $30

Sundays | 2:00PM | $25

No performance Sunday, March 10

Join Us for the 2023-2024 Season

City Theater Associates produces five community theater productions per year. City Theater’s annual season runs from October – August and features both musicals and straight plays.

Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.

Fridays and Saturdays | 7:30PM | $30
Sundays | 2:00PM | $25
No performance Sunday, May 12

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, setting the standards and rules of modern musical theatre. In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background for Curly, a charming cowboy, and Laurey, a feisty farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie and hapless Will Parker in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination, and the promise of a new land.

Fridays and Saturdays | 7:30PM | $30
Sundays | 2:00PM | $25

            This was my first visit to this adorable little theater in Biddeford. We went to see the local production of Calendar Girls. I loved the wide wooden stairs, the interior has been well cared for. It's definitely an old building but it is beautiful inside. The actors did a fantastic job! I look forward to seeing more plays here.

              I have been here on many occasions. Some as viewer and at times a participant. This place has some great history. Lots of many different talents have taken this stage. If you ever get a chance to visit, ask working staff about the lady that peacefully haunts our theater!
