On May 20th, the Children's Museum & Theatre of Maine in Portland, Maine was transformed into a dazzling display of gold and glitter, marking the centennial celebration of the Children’s Theatre, lovingly known as Maddy’s Theatre. The evening was made even more special with the presence of esteemed guests connected to the theater's namesake, Maddy Corson, Reba Askari, and Barbee Gilman, who were honored with heartfelt gifts in the hallowed halls of Maddys Theatre. As Cyle and Liz Davenport of Convinced Photography, we were privileged to capture the essence of this extraordinary event.
The event was hosted by the talented Executive Director, Julie Butcher Pezzino, and the charismatic Chris Costa of News Center Maine, who served as the evening's Masters of Ceremonies. The program unfolded with a delightful cocktail hour, followed by a captivating theater performance featuring Bondeko, Viva, and the renowned Adam Gardner of Guster. Throughout the museum, guests were treated to enchanting plays, delectable food, lively animations, and the chance for adults to experience the cherished spaces that hold a special place in every child's heart.
This glittering gold evening was a heartfelt tribute to the unwavering support and care that has sustained the Children's Theatre over the years. It was an opportunity for the community of Portland to come together and celebrate the theater's enduring legacy and the anticipation of future endearing productions. As we look back on this remarkable occasion, we are thrilled to share a glimpse of the magical moments we captured through our lens, preserving the joy and enchantment that filled the air that night.
