According to Gloucester Stage Board member, Elizabeth Neumeier, ‘It is thrilling to be celebrating the 30th season of the Gloucester Stage Company, and to be doing it with our partner across the harbor, the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center. Both organizations have come a long way since their founding. We hope that people from all over the North Shore come join in the fun.’ “Working with Gloucester Stage on this event is a natural fit for the Heritage Center,’ points out Harriet Webster Executive Director Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center ‘It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the enormous impact of the sea and the arts on Gloucester’s cultural landscape. Each organization represents a unique part of the Gloucester cultural experience and both have homes overlooking the inner harbor. What a terrific partnership!” Tickets for the celebration can be purchased at the Gloucester Stage Box Office via telephone: 978-281-4433 or by visiting www.gloucesterstage .org Or at Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center, 23 Harbor Loop, Gloucester, MA.
