Gloucester Story with the Annisquam Village Players
August 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Gloucester Story,” a musical based on the 1953 Russel Crouse Award-winning play by Clayton B. Stockbridge. Enjoy this free, open-air performance by the Annisquam Village Players – the country’s longest running community theatre – taking place on the docks at Maritime Gloucester. Known as the Plumber Playwright of Gloucester, Stockbridge crafted “Gloucester Story” to reflect the Cape Ann fishing industry in 1905 when schooners still ruled the seas and dory fishing claimed many lives. It tells the tale of a young son of a fish merchant dreaming about a life at sea, only to get his wish and some of the tragedy that came with it.
In case of rain, the performance will be moved to the Annisquam Village Hall. All ticket holders will be emailed details for the new venue.
