Erika Pfander, former artistic director of the Chamber Theatre of Maine, has installed a retrospective exhibit about the theater in the Thomaston Public Library. The display, part of the library’s Community Displays program, contains a decade’s worth of memorabilia from Pfander’s tenure at the Chamber Theatre.

Pfander became artistic director of the group in 1991 and remained with CTM until 1999. During that time, the Chamber Theatre produced shows in a number of locations including many at Watts Hall in Thomaston.

The display includes a letter from playwright May Sarton, whose play “The Music Box Bird” had its world premiere at Watts Hall in 1993. Other items include promotional posters from a number of shows, original programs and brochures and photographs of Pfander and Robert Denning, the founder of the Chamber Theatre.

The display will be on exhibit on the library’s main floor through Sept. 1. For more information about the display or the Community Displays program, contact the library at 354-2453. Thomaston Public Library is in the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1.
