I have been a fan of Clay Aiken for more than 10 years. It has always been amazing how much I have learned because of Clay. Some things are important…Inclusion, bullying, UNICEF…some are interesting because of his career…and other things are just fun to learn!
Over the last few days I have learned a lot about the Southern Coast of Maine…especially the town of Ogunquit. As many of you already know, Clay will be spending about a month in the area as he performs at the Ogunquit Playhouse.
Ogunquit is a friendly little beach and artist colony on the southern coast of Maine. Ogunquit, whose Indian name means “beautiful place by the sea,” boasts a three-mile stretch of white sand beach, framed by grassy dunes. It is one of the top rated beaches in the USA. Ogunquit is only 4 square miles. There are two main sections: the village, and Perkins Cove.
One thing to do in Ogunquit is to walk the one-mile Marginal Way from the center of town. It is a winding foot path, lined with wild rose bushes that wanders high above the cliffs and overlooks the Atlantic. There are beautiful vistas and shoreline tidal pools. It leads to the tiny fishing port of Perkins Cove, an area of lobster shacks and craft shops.
According to the Chamber of Commerce:
The Ogunquit Summer Playhouse is the oldest in Maine. Started half a century ago in a local garage, it has become one of the premier summer stock theaters on the East coast with its drama school attracting students from around the country. The schedule includes both evening and matinee performances.
Golf, sailing, sea kayaking, biking and whale watching are favorite pastimes. In fact, Money Magazine and Family Fun have both honored the Ogunquit region as one of the top destinations in North America for vacations.
Now, doesn’t that sound like a great place to spend a few weeks?
Since it was announced that Clay would be starring in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, many fans throughout the world are trying to get to Ogunquit to see Clay perform. Isn’t it exciting to look forward to an amazing theatre experience with Clay Aiken?
Are you planning to travel to Ogunquit?
If so, how long will it take you get there?
If you can’t make it, lets hope there will be many reports and maybe even a bit of Clack. All fans, from Iceland to Brazil, from California to Japan, will want to hear and see Clay performing this summer. This Clayfan will be in Ogunquit for the last performance of the run. We will fly into Boston which is less than 2 hours south of the area. It’s a good excuse to spend a few days learning more about the area!
I am hoping that we might hear something from Clay in the next few days. It might be a tweet or even a short message on the OFC. Of course, he must be very busy learning 14 songs and lots of lines…plus moving up north for a month of fun!
As you know, I will update CANN whenever there is new information.
I hope you will check in to see the updated information!
