Michael Guptill is the owner/executive producer of Hackmatack Playhouse,  located in Berwick, Maine. In this episode, we ask Michael all the details of running a theater, we talked about his college years at the University of Maine, Orono  and we got into the details of his “real” job as the sales and marketing manager at Gold Bell.

He provides tips on how to work your way up to his current position and lots of interesting tips on how to manage a summer stock theater.

Hackmatack, named for the trees on the property, sits on nearly 200 beautiful acres and has been in the Guptill family since the 1600’s!  It has been been a working farm since then.  It is still a working farm today, where they raise 100% all natural, grass fed bison (or buffalo).

We hope you enjoy this podcast!
