Chance Theater presents: Matinicus The Story of Abigail Burgess
2024 Dates and production: TBA

For over 160 years, the courage of teenager Abigail Burgess has inspired books, songs, and even the US Coast Guard to name a ship after her. Now, for the first time, see her remarkable story live on stage. When young Abbie moved to Matinicus Rock in the mid-19th century with her lighthouse keeper father and their family, her biggest concern was boredom. However, when the winds changed, Abbie found herself thrust into the seemingly impossible position of protecting her family — and some chickens — from a violent storm while keeping the lights brightly burning for any passing ship to miss the perilous shores.

Brilliantly brought to life by OCTG Theatre Award-nominated actress, Aubrey Saverino (last season’s Cry It Out), this tale of humor and heroism highlights how far some will go to keep their lights shining and demonstrates how small actions can make a big difference.
