Our Season History

In 1970 TAM, founded by Dick Sewell and Robert Suddards Joyce, became the first professional classical repertory theatre north of Boston; it continues to be the only professional theatre in the Kennebec Valley. Perhaps our most significant contributions to the field have been maintaining a foothold in an economic region with decreasing financial resources, producing a traditional rotating repertory of classic plays with full cast sizes, and presenting seasons of vibrant language plays both during the summer and on tour throughout the state.
