The Carousel Music Theater was a fun nite out in Boothbay Harbor. The nite includes dinner, a music review and a musical comedy play. The cast (which were also our wait staff) was very good and full of energy. Don't expect 5 star dining as the meal consisted of soup, salad and desert. Adequate. Remember to tip the cast on... More

My family and I have been coming to this theater for a few years now, and this past weekend I went on a date here with my boyfriend. We had a fantastic time! Great music, friendly and very talented performers, as well as delicious food. I would certainly recommend for anyone with a love of musical theater!

We stayed at the Flagship Inn, next door, and decided to give the Carousel Theater a try. Best move ever! Lots of good food and laughter. Very talented young theater graduates sang their hearts out during the meal (we had the well-filled & delicious lobster rolls...$5 extra), fish chowder (tasty). The fun show followed- a farce of the first order,... More

Fairly large, open space, with a nice little stage area. Table set-up looked to hold around a couple hundred folk, but it was very small and intimate crowd the night that Patti and I were there. These kidz performed and sang their hearts out, with one or more entertaining while the others tended to us, the patrons. Food is average... More

What a wonderful treat and surprise to see such talent performed by a great group of hardworking budding artists this had not been on our bucket list but so glad we were told about this little theater. Wish the actors the success they deserve

My husband and I were looking for some live entertainment when visiting Boothbay Harbor and our evening at the Carousel was terrific. Dinner was a simple soup and sandwich (I recommend the lobster roll), with jug wine or beer available for an extra cost. Five talented and enthusiastic actors/singers entertained us during dinner and then put on a very clever... More

Great show- five actors that played two parts each plus they were your wait staff. the comedy-mystery was great-you would not know that it was the end of season for the staff
