The Saco River Theatre

SRT is an Actors' Equity Association Small Professional Theatre. The resident company, The Originals, presents a wide range of material, from cutting edge dramas, to comedies, to full scale musical productions. Audiences have come to expect unusual and exciting material from the group, which routinely presents Maine and Northeast premieres. Although The Originals has maintained a relatively low profile, it is widely regarded as one of the finest theatre companies in New England. Ticket prices are among the lowest of Maine's professional companies, and each production has at least one “pay-what-you-can” night to ensure that its productions are accessible to anyone wishing to attend. SRT also runs a diverse concert series across genres, from national and international acts to local and regional standouts. The multitude of artistic events has not changed the quiet and picturesque feeling of the neighborhood. SRT has been referred to as greater Portland’s “Little Carnegie Hall.”
