It is official, as part of the state wide celebration of Maine’s 200th year of statehood the Bowdoinham Historical Society is hosting the “Happy Birthday Maine Variety Show” on March 28th. This is going to be an evening of fun and entertainment for everyone in town. We are now looking for acts to fill the variety show. These acts are open to all ages and in true variety show fashion they can be of any type; musical, dance, poetry, skits, comedy or any other talent you want to share. We are limiting the whole show to two hours so acts should be no more than 10 minutes in length.
Below you will find a google doc link for the signup form. We will also have hardcopy forms available at the town office. Because we are not holding auditions, the acts will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Please register your act by March 6th! If we fill all the time slots then we hope to hold more town variety shows in the future if this one is a success.
All acts will have the opportunity to practice in the Merrymeeting Hall theater and we will help in anyway we can.
The other part of our evening’s festivities is a Birthday Cake intermission. We are hope that some of those who don’t want to get up on stage will want to bake a birthday cake for Maine’s “Birthday”. We encourage recipes that are 200 years old (or younger) and bakers of all ages. The Cakes will be on display before the show and during intermission we will enjoy a slice with tea, coffee and cider. The sign ups for cake bakers will follow a bit later this month.
