Wonder On at Carding Brook Farm

We’re taking you back to the land + into the forest.

Threadbare Theatre Workshop illuminates epics in a simple way through the magic of
resourceful storytelling— engaging community members as crucial collaborators +
putting place at the center of the story.


Threadbare’s community-based productions at Carding Brook Farm bring folks of all ages together to collaborate as makers, musicians, and storytellers on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and the premiere of Mackerel Sky, an original play by Jon Ellsworth.

Though our summer season productions are performed outdoors, audience members MUST be masked for admittance to all performances. Thank you for helping us ensure the safety of our community.

Pay What You May tickets must be reserved online. No tickets are sold at the door. Through our online box office, you will be charged $1 to reserve your seats. Please bring your payment for tickets to the performance (cash or check written out to Threadbare Theatre Workshop). 


As part of Threadbare’s mission to celebrate + elevate the heritage of rural places, they
will donate a percentage of this season's ticket sales to Maine Wabanaki REACH. 
If all performances are sold

out and you'd like to be put on a waitlist, please email 

with the number of people in your party and a phone number to contact you. 


Carding Brook Farm is located along the Benjamin River at 4 Carlton Drive in Brooklin, Maine on traditional Wabanaki territory. We recommend audience members carpool if they can.

Please note, Pay What You May ticket sales are not donations. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to Threadbare Theatre Workshop, please do so through their fiscal sponsor
