NOISES OFF - June 17 through July 2
Possibly the funniest farce ever written! Noises off presents a manic menagerie of actors rehearsing and performing a flop of a comedy called "Nothing On". Doors will be slamming on stage and back stage in this hilarious "bumper car" of a romp.
Jun 17-18; Jun 22-25; Jun 29-Jul 2
Matinees Jun 23 & 30
ON THE TOWN - July 6 through July 23
1944. New York City. Three sailors on a 24-hour adventure to find the sights and sweethearts of the big city. With a score by Leonard Bernstein and dancing inspired by Jerome Robbins this classical Broadway hit is the perfect midsummer musical for Hackmatack.

ONCE UPON A MATTRESS - July 27 through August 13
This madcap retelling of the "Princess and the Pea" is a perfect musical for young and old. No one in the Kingdom can marry until the Prince finds a wife; and no Princess is good enough for the Queen Mother. The Queen meets her match when her son falls in love with a Princess from the swamp.

Matinees Jul 28, Aug 4, 11
ALMOST, MAINE - August 17 through September 3
On a cold moonless night as the northern lights hover in the starry skies, the residents of a small mythical Maine town fall in and out of love in unexpected ways. Knees are bruised, hearts are broken. But the bruises heal and the hearts mend - almost. A romantic comedy by and for Mainers.
