The Belfast Maskers, a community theater group based in Belfast, Maine, present “Picnic”, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by William Inge.

2010 was the 4th year the Maskers have presented summer plays outdoors in Belfast’s Steamboat Landing Park, and the first year the “Festival Stage” has been used. John Bielenberg, professor emeritus of theater at Binghamton University of New York and presently a Belfast resident, designed and built the stage for the Maskers and for the community in general. The staging is assembled in June at the park, used for summer plays and stored away for off-season.

The set on the stage was designed for “Picnic” by Linden Frederick, a well known Maine artist. The classic summer romance was directed by Matt Ames, produced by Lilias Outerbridge and stage managed by Rebecca Stuart. The cast featured Elise Morrow-Schap, Reid Connell, Sonia Vazquez, Nicholas Abounader, Chris Goosman, Jennifer Lowe, Robin Jones, Zach Hewins, R.J. Keller, Danielle Bannister, and Clare Olson. Tom Sadowski operates light controls in this panorama.

The Maskers offer five to seven productions per year, most in their nearby waterfront theater when not in the park. They also offer a Children’s Theater Camp and classes and workshops for various age groups. The Maskers produced their first play in 1987 and in 1990 incorporated as a not-for-profit business.

The land where the summer plays are staged used to be the site of Belfast’s chicken processing industry. In 1999, MBNA, a locally based corporation, cleaned up the waterfront property and donated it to the City of Belfast part of which became Steamboat Landing Park .The gazebo is used for weddings, concerts and picnics The park sees extensive use in summer months.

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
