Threadbare Theatre Workshop’s outdoor summer season at Carding Brook Farm will take its audience back to the land and into the forest. Threadbare will open in August with Shakespeare’s magical haunt in the woods, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and will close the season just before Labor Day under Jon Ellsworth’s very own Mackerel Sky.
Donations toward Threadbare’s outdoor theatre project will provide access to free theatre-making workshops and community engagement events, compensate local collaborators for their work, and allow attendees to purchase tickets at a Pay What You May price. As part of its mission to celebrate and elevate the heritage of rural places, Threadbare will donate a percentage of ticket sales to Maine Wabanaki REACH.
Threadbare’s season at Carding Brook Farm will continue to follow CDC guidelines to ensure all workshops, rehearsals, and performances are compliant with COVID-19 guidelines.
