We've Got the Blueberry Blues!

(See Assigned Row Plan Below!)

"Rakealot" Knights of the Round Table

The script and the music are different year to year, but you can count on one thing to stay the same: The Blueberry Festival musical is always written and performed by local talent, and it's always big fun!

Members from the church and community come together to create the script, choreography, lyrics, stage sets, props and costumes for five nights of homegrown, small-town good times in the church sanctuary. Tickets for the 2016 show will go on sale in June of 2016. Please call the church and leave your name and phone number. We'll return your call in the order received.

How to get advanced tickets:

Tickets for this year's play may be purchased at the church one day a week starting the second week in June. The day of the week will be announced after May 30. Until then you may call the church and get on our return-call list. To do this, please call the church voicemail and leave your name and phone number. When we're ready to sell tickets, we'll return your call in the order received. (207) 255-6665

Main floor seating: People holding tickets for the show will know their pew section on the main floor of the sanctuary.

The reserved pew arrangement applies to the shows presented on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. The seats in the pew are not numbered, so you may arrange yourself in the pew on a first-come basis.

Balcony seating: The balcony is general seating every night, so you choose your seat on a first-come basis.
