BRUNSWICK – A production of “Young Tom Edison” will begin the Theatre for Young Audiences series at Maine State Music Theatre.

The musical begins in 1929 when hundreds of people are gathered in Dearborn, Mich., to honor Thomas Alva Edison on the 50th anniversary of his inventing the light bulb.

“Young Tom Edison” is built and performed by the theater’s intern company. It is directed by Joyce A. Presutti, the intern director.
