Maine’s Got Talent will not take place on March 21st as originally planned due to the risk of spreading COVID-19. 
 
Following Governor Mills’ and the CDC’s recommendation to practice social distancing and limit gatherings of more than 250 people, we will postpone Maine’s Got Talent until a later date. As of now, that date is TBD.

All tickets for the March 21st event will be honored at our rescheduled performance. 

While this decision is a difficult one, it is also one that we stand behind 100%. The health and well-being of our staff, students, clients, and community are of the highest priority. We encourage you to take care of yourself and to stay informed, using reputable sources of information, such as the Maine CDC, https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/, or www.cdc.gov.
