A MINDSET OF LONG-TERM GROWTH There is no set formula for managing your wealth. Financial instruments change. Investment strategies come and go. But at H.M. Payson, we believe there are certain core values that never go out of style: personal service, scrupulous research, and an attention to detail that favors long-term growth over short-term fashion. If this sounds good to you, learn how we can tailor an investment approach that can stand the test of time. Call us.

Director’s Note I have had a love affair with GYPSY since I first directed it at the Marriott Lincolnshire Theatre back in 1983. It was a particularly memorable event because I was able to give an Equity card to a dynamo named Marc Robin, a household name at Maine State Music Theatre. I had a chance to revisit this grand lady in 1998 at the same theatre and had another date with her at Chicago’s Drury Lane Oakbrook Theater. It’s pretty easy to fall under the spell of this music theatre classic. Not many shows have the pedigree of GYPSY, from it’s brilliant show biz composer Jule Styne to its brilliant librettist Arthur Laurents to the young man second time at bat as a lyricist, the now incomparable Stephen Sondheim. A formidable trio to say the least. To begin with, GYPSY (1959) packs a punch to anyone who loves the Broadway theatre. It serves as a fantastic bit of American theatre history – that fascinating period in the early part of the century when families were packing the local theatres to enjoy the heyday of Vaudeville – that wholesome entertainment of singers, dancers, contortionist, magicians, and of course, kid’s acts. But Vaudeville would become a thing of the past. The talkies won a new audience and all those small theatres throughout America were looking for every possible way to bring audiences into their decaying theatres. And so Burlesque was born. GYPSY chronicles this period through the story of the stage mother of all stage mothers – Mama Rose – as she pushes and cajoles her daughters into the spotlight. Few musicals have matched the brilliance of Styne’s score, or the intensity of Arthur Laurents’ book scenes, and the brilliance of novice lyricist Sondheim. I love reading Sondheim’s account of what he considered one of the most exciting moments in his theatrical career. It was the night he created the now infamous number that is the show’s dramatic climax – “Rose’s Turn.” Sondheim was to meet Styne and director/choreographer Jerome Robbins to talk through the number. Styne bowed out, leaving Sondheim and Robbins alone on a the deserted stage of the New Amsterdam’s rooftop theatre, the scene of many of Ziegfeld’s late night entertainments. Sondheim recounts the three hour session, composing at the piano while Robbins danced awkwardly about the stage like a possessed Mama Rose. He even improvised lyrics, something that was anathema to his writing technique, but at the end of the session, they had laid the foundation for one of the great numbers of the American musical theatre. Coming to Brunswick to stage my favorite musical has been a journey of love. I hope you will share my enthusiasm for our wonderful cast and brilliant designers and I hope you will leave the theatre having fallen in love with some of the most marvelously created characters of the American musical stage. And now, let us entertain you! – Dominic Missimi, Director

About Bowdoin College

South Boston Pier, 1896, watercolor and graphite. Smith College Museum of Art, Northampton, Massachusetts. Purchased with the Charles B. Hoyt Fund.

One of the oldest colleges in the nation, Bowdoin College received its charter in 1794 from Governor Samuel Adams when Maine was a district of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The College was named for former Massachusetts governor James Bowdoin II, whose son, James Bowdoin III, was an early benefactor. In 1970 Bowdoin became the first highly selective college in America to make the SAT optional for admissions, and in 1971, Bowdoin admitted its first class of women. Today, the College enrolls approximately 1,750 students from around the world and offers small classes, opportunities for independent study, and a 9:1 student faculty ratio. A Bowdoin liberal arts education and residential experience are focused on instilling principled leadership, lifelong learning, and service to the common good. Notable alumni include 14th U.S. President Franklin Pierce (class of 1824); writers Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (both 1825); African-American newspaper editor John Brown Russwurm (1826); Civil War leaders Oliver Otis Howard (1850) and Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain (1852); Arctic explorer Robert E. Peary (1877); former U.S. Senate Majority Leader, architect of the Ireland peace accord, and U.S. Special Envoy for Middle East Peace George J. Mitchell (1954); former U.S. Senator and Secretary of Defense William Cohen (1962); American Express chairman and CEO Kenneth I. Chenault (1973); author and educator Geoffrey Canada (1974); ABC Nightline host Cynthia McFadden; Olympic gold medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson (1979); and Netflix founder and CEO Reed Hastings (1983).

The Angels The MSMT Angels is a volunteer auxiliary that carries out a wide variety of activities in support of the Maine State Music Theatre. We form the core of the theatre’s ushering staff and have an active program to support the theatre’s interns. Many of our members transport cast members and production staff to and from the airport, bus terminal and train station; others distribute posters and brochures for display in stores and restaurants in a wide area throughout Brunswick, and beyond. Angels also provide food and support for the stage crew during strike weekends. Each season we contribute a lot of our time and energy to MSMT, but being an Angel has very special rewards: we usher on opening nights and have seats to see the show; we attend the cast parties; and we host an annual dinner for the interns. Best of all, our activities give us a great chance to get to know the cast and crew, who invariably are wonderful people! If you’d like to know more about us, contact Chari Burdick (725-7068; msmtangels@yahoo.com). You can also, of course, ask any usher who is wearing an Angels name tag. Tim Weinzetl, President

JULE STYNE (Music) With the scores of such Broadway classics as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Peter Pan, Bells Are Ringing, Gypsy and Funny Girl to his credit, composer Jule Styne ranks as one of the undisputed architects of the American musical theater. Although he was born in London’s East End, Styne’s family moved to the United States in 1912. Young Julius showed such a talent for the piano that he had performed with the Chicago, St. Louis, and Detroit Symphonies by age 10. He developed his feel for popular music working with the jazz bands of 1920s Chicago, and as vocal coach to such 1930s Hollywood stars as Shirley Temple and Alice Faye.

Annual Donors Maine State Music Theatre extends our deepest gratitude to all our generous donors. Without their help MSMT would not be able to present the incredible production you are enjoying today. The cost to produce four professional musicals in just twelve weeks is far beyond the revenue generated from sold out houses at our current ticket price. Thanks to the kindness of these donors, as well as our sponsors and advertisers, we are able to keep our ticket prices lower than many of our peers and at around one third the price of a Broadway ticket. Help us to show our appreciation by thanking them for supporting MSMT. If you are not a donor, we hope you will consider us as you make your charitable gifts. Not only will you be helping MSMT continue to bring Broadway to Brunswick, but you will be providing the next generation of theatre professionals the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business as they spend their summers as interns, apprentices and journeymen. You will also ensure that we can continue to offer “pay what you can” specials on the first Friday of each show and student rush tickets. Sincerely, Stephanie Dupal, Interim Executive Director Curt Dale Clark, Artistic Consultant

LEAVING A LEGACY: As a nonprofit organization, MSMT has always depended on support and gifts from our family and friends. Fifty-five years is a long time to have kept Victoria Crandallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream of resident musical theatre in Brunswick, Maine the reality that we enjoy today. Recognized by actors, technicians, and audiences alike, MSMT is one of the largest and most valuable arts organizations in the State of Maine and plays to over 55,000 patrons each summer. Planned gifts are a vital source of support to all aspects of our operation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from actorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; salaries and production costs to our education and outreach programs. By providing for the Theatre in your estate plan, you can help preserve the beauty and magic of our cultural treasure. These gifts will not only leave a lasting tribute but they also have a tremendous effect on future generations that will come through the doors of the Theatre. Assure that MSMT is here for future audiences by informing us in writing that you have included Maine State Music Theatre in your estate plans. Including MSMT in your trusts or as partial beneficiaries of retirement accounts or insurance policies means that this theatre, that means so much to so many, will continue to shine and inspire for years to come. We thank you for considering it and for making such a difference! For more information, call Barbara Whidden at 207-725-8760, extension 15.

Interns & Apprentices Each season, college and post-graduate theatre students from across the country participate as performance, technical, and arts management interns. They receive free room and a weekly stipend for food and incidentals, and can earn college credit. Performance and stage-management interns may earn Equity Membership Candidacy points. Curt Dale Clark is the 2013 Education/ Intern Director. The Gregg Marriner Memorial Foundation (since 1987), established by Norman and Barbara Marriner in honor of their son, provides a financial award to the Outstanding Technical Intern of the summer. The Kenison Award, under the stewardship of Homer and Prisca Kenison, was established in 2005 to provide financial assistance to the Most Promising Performance Intern. The Angels’ Memorial Fund Award – in honor of deceased angels – is given to an intern who exhibits extraordinary attributes that set her/him apart. The MSMT apprentices are experienced performers, administrators and technical staff who are just beginning their careers in professional theatre. MSMT’s apprentice program offers them the opportunity to work alongside seasoned veterans in their field and make connections that foster their future careers. Many of our apprentices began as interns and have returned to MSMT with more experience after deciding to pursue their passion for working in the theatre.

Season Sponsor The Highlands It’s Not Just Your Home, It’s Your Community. Located just one mile from Bowdoin College in the Historic District of Topsham, The Highlands is nestled within 75 acres of woods, with nature trails and beautifully landscaped gardens. Offering both rental and purchase options, The Highlands’ residents have the choice of an equity investment in their home, or simplifying life with our rental choices. Enjoy the best of life with all the advantages of the Midcoast region’s plentiful cultural and social offerings. Each neighborhood within The Highlands community presents its own special identity. Our Highlands Historic neighborhood is truly unique. It demonstrates our continued dedication and passion for preservation and restoration of historic buildings. At the center of this quaint New England village of cooperatively owned cottage homes is the former Topsham Town Hall, built in 1896. Customize your new home to reflect your distinctive lifestyle. And, if you build a new home in Town Hall Village, The Highlands will purchase your home to make that dream become a reality sooner rather than later. Or, live in a historic apartment home within our Benjamin Porter House or our Holden Frost House. These tastefully appointed apartment homes have been designed for those who want to live in a fully modernized historic home without the worry of upkeep and maintenance. The Estates are cooperatively owned single and duplex homes nestled into friendly neighborhoods. These cottage-style homes are surrounded by natural landscape where homeowners enjoy the perfect mix of privacy and community. The Maine Lodge presents spacious one- and two-bedroom apartment options to our many on-campus housing choices. In-house amenities and a multitude of common areas provide convenience and comfort with the ease of a lease rather than purchase. The lifestyle at The Maine Lodge is perfect for the person who prefers independent living with access to concierge services and everything you need to complement each day right outside your door. Our newest independent living accommodation in Friendship Cove allows residents maintain their independence longer with additional services such as 3 meals a day, laundry and daily housekeeping. The Highlands residents benefit from a dedication and focus on wellness. Work out in the gym, swim in the indoor heated pool, or take a hike on the nature trails. With personal training, aquacize, yoga, and tai chi all available in our community center, your fitness goals can easily be achieved. While The Highlands was the first retirement community in the Midcoast region to offer Assisted Living, there are so many more options now. Life changes, so we have many different levels of support and services bridging the gap between fully independent living and the need for higher levels of care. It’s for the individual who realizes the benefits of living within a supportive environment of peers, along with a life enrichment program designed to meet the residents’ individual needs.
