intern opportunities at Lakewood Theater

Happy to help announce that Lakewood Theater will be offering summer intern positions for 2024!

This is a wonderful opportunity for those interested in learning theater craft in the costume shop, box office/marketing, and of course, backstage. 

All internships include a weekly stipend, a ticket to each of the season's shows, and housing right here on Olive Street.

In addition to the intern possibilities there are two hourly wage positions open at Lakewood Theater this year; Technical Director and Theater Technician/Carpenter. Each of these also include tickets, housing, and a few other perks.

Applications can be found here.

Lakewood Theater 2024 Season

Lakewood Theater has announced plays for the 2024 season! 

This is the first true sign of Spring, well awaited every year. 

Auditions will be in March, and then call-backs, first call and rehearsals. Then there you are, having just finished a lovely meal at the Lakewood Inn Restaurant, walking across to your seats. Let the magic begin!  

See the schedule and buy tickets here.

bunk beds

The new design for the bunk beds not only makes the most of the space that we have, but uses less materials! 

Each sleeps four, and there will be two of these units built at the Cabin!

the Cabin

Now a part of the on Olive Street project, the Cabin at #8 Brook Street...  a companion to the Cabbage on the hill at #12 Olive Street.  Home of the community bonfire, and available for LCH summer of 2024

Lots of history here too

upon reflection

Occasionally,  obviously when you have not been paying full attention perhaps, you will suddenly find that things have actually worked out to plan. You didn't even notice and it happened anyway. Okay, so maybe not exactly the way you thought it would be, but it's there.

a little warmth

There once was a crooked little stove pipe in a crooked little cottage...

And it is so nice to have a small woodfire going on chilly mornings! Looking forward to much more coziness this winter... as is Peach as well!

ceramic molds

It saddens me to know that the kiln has not been fired up here on Olive Street in... well, too very long.

I'm a clay person, and not a mold-using artist, but have these and many more at the ready for others to use! Anybody interested in giving classes maybe in 2024?

Little wire wrapped glass baubles, hung by string or ribbon, look beautiful in the sunlight of a window. Offering at $10 each in support of the on Olive Street project. Quite a few to chose from.

Brighten someone's day

artist community - Waterville

I am so very excited to share this! Much like what we on Olive Street offer to artists seasonally through the residency program, these wonderful people are organizing for folks year round! Please see the contact info below


Artist Community - creating a living and studio

Do you know a local artist in the Waterville area? Are there any artists in the Waterville and Kennebec County interested in creating a artist Housing collaborative?

We're working with a small group of folks in our network to create something of an artist community - if you or someone you know are interested in getting involved, send us an email and we'll make the connections -

A few of us have a building owner willing to rent two 2br/1ba apartments (each with a full kitchen, and living room) in their 3 unit building with the opportunity to host artist feature/opening events and showing our art for sale at their other vacation properties/buildings if we can bring together 3-5 fellow artists (any type is welcome: paint, drawing, spoken word, writers...)!!!
For now we're hoping for the following:
$575/room/person, but we could get it discounted if we rent for all 4 bedrooms.
The goal now would be to use one of the living rooms as a shared studio space for everyone.
