Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Collins Center for the Arts’ 2019-2020 performance season, our 34th.

Most Mainers are familiar with the expression, “You can’t they-uh from heey-uh.” In other words, it’s sometimes tough to get from point A to point B in Maine.

For many of our artists, many of whom are coming from all over the country and the world, getting to Orono can also be a challenge. But despite those challenges, they show up. And not only do they show up, they come back!

This season – among others – we welcome back Momix, Bobby McFerrin, Rainforest Reptiles and Cirque Mechanics and welcome first-timers Roseanne Cash, The Irish Rovers, Chubby Checker and Finding Neverland.

But most of all we welcome, and thank, you, our audience, for your commitment to the CCA. It is our pleasure to provide a beautiful venue where you can see performers up close and personal at a reasonable price.

So whether you are a first-timer or a returner,  we’re glad you’re heeyuh.

Danny Williams,
Executive Director
