New Surry Theatre’s Performing Arts School, now in its 45th year, annually offers two semesters of classes in many disciplines, including acting, singing, theater make-up and more. We also offer workshops on topics such as lighting, dance, and set design. Every summer, we welcome children ages 8 and up to our summer camp and youth ages 15-18 to Youth Theater Speak, our summer theater seminar for teens. Visit our performing arts school page for more information.


New Surry Theatre thanks the generous support of the many individuals, businesses and foundations, all of whom make our cultural commitment to the community possible. Donations, sponsorships and grants are transformed into our mission of  
engagement, inspiration and entertainment through the performing arts and keep theater alive in our rural community on the coast of Maine. Discover how you can support our work in the community. Thank you!


New Surry Theatre offers a full-season of live theatrical productions every year. Our performing arts school ends each semester with a free open house performance. Youth Theater Speak, our summer theater seminar for teens, culminates in a live original production every summer. Visit our Upcoming Shows page for information about the 45th season.
