Friday, October 8 – Sunday, October 17

On the marvelous Meep Island, the Meeps play all day long; until, one fine day, the Somethings come along…Are these Somethings unpleasant? Will these Somethings be kind? What sort of Somethings did the little Meeps find? Come be part of our story and see how it ends; maybe Somethings and Meeps can somehow be friends. A free theatre event for audiences of all ages, presented outside in October on a variety of stages. Bring a blanket, chairs, a picnic; tell your friends and join the fun! This one-hour theatrical adventure is meant for everyone!

The Marvelous Meep Island Adventure
is a devised production based on the play Meep by Ed Swidey, directed by USM Theatre Department Chair Sara Valentine and assistant directed by physical comedian Jared Mongeau. USM Theatre students are working with movement specialists, artists, and musicians to create a fantastic story for the whole family.

This event is free and no reservations are needed. For more information, visit, or call the USM Theatre Box Office at (207) 780-5151
