Welcome to our 45th season!
Our 45th season lineup is a very special one, as it marks the retirement of NST’s long-time Artistic Director, Bill Raiten. While he is retiring from directing, Bill will continue to teach in the Performing Arts School, where he has encouraged hundred of students of all ages to discover their talents and strengths.
We have planned a season full of Bill’s favorite plays from over the years and we will finish the season off with Fiddler on the Roof, the first show that Bill and NST produced in 1972.
We hope you will join us for all of this season’s exciting offerings! Season tickets are now available for purchase. Season ticket holders receive a discount on full-price tickets by purchasing tickets for all of the shows in advance. The price of a season ticket for the remaining three shows (Shirley Valentine, Sylvia and Fiddler on the Roof) is $42 for adults, $32 for seniors and $29 for students (18 and under). To purchase a season ticket, please call 207-200-4720.

In celebration of NST's 45th season, we are pleased to bring this award-winning, timeless musical to the Blue Hill stage. Fiddler on the Roof was the first performance Raiten ever directed for New Surry Theatre.
Fiddler on the Roof explores the everlasting themes of family, tradition, love and culture. The original Broadway production had the first musical theater run in history to surpass 3,000 performances. It won multiple Tony awards, including Best Musical and awards for leading actor and actress, score and choreography. Fiddler has enjoyed six Broadway revivals, a highly successful film adaptation and has enduring international popularity.
Directed by Bec Poole

Can a man love a dog too much? Sylvia, by A.R. Gurney, humorously explores love along with the nature of relationships of all forms. Recently produced on Broadway in 2015 starring Matthew Broderick, this is the story of Greg, his wife Kate and a stray dog names Sylvia. Funny, sweet, and very much geared towards adults (in both language and content), the story that unfolds changes everyone involved. The chaos and charm Sylvia (a role originated by Sarah Jessica Parker) brings into this marriage delights audiences and warms hearts. The play has been described as a comedic masterpiece.
Please also join us in November and March for performances of the Performing Arts School and in August for the final performance of Youth Theater Speak! Watch this site and the school and Youth Theater Speak pages for dates and times.
