March 27, 2015 at the State Theatre

The 8th Annual Stache Pag will be held at the State Theatre in Portland, Maine on Friday, March 27, 2015 at 7:30 pm. That happens to officially be “Moustache Appreciation Day” in the City of Portland.

The State Theatre is the perfect venue for the Stache Pag because the allure of the big stage will draw the very craziest moustaches out of the woodwork. The State offers these men a chance to make history for their family, to make their hometowns proud. Where else can you cut a moustache into your winter beard, dress in costume and then steal the hearts of 1500 people by sauntering on the catwalk? The Stache Pag, unrehearsed and audience-fueled, is where facial hair legends are made.

Spectator tickets go on sale on Friday January 9, 2015.

Like at last year’s show, there will be a 90 minute variety show beginning at 7:30pm, featuring Stache Pag-approved comedy, dance, singing, magic, poetry and some surprises.

At around 9pm, the real entertainment begins as Maine’s most daring moustaches, and the personalities shaped by them, each take their turn on the catwalk of the State Theatre. Three finalists are chosen by way of Crowd Applause Decibel Level in these categories:
Magnum PI – Natural Moustache, no beard.
1899 Maine Legislature – Styled Moustache, no beard. Wax, dyes and other aids are allowed.
The Castaway – Full Beard Natural.
The Thigh Tickler – Freestyle Facial Hair, anything goes.

Then our esteemed panel of judges will rate the finalists on their ability to complete a series of stage competitions, including the “Gentlemen’s Obstacle Course”, with the winner of each category receiving a trophy of accomplishment.

But don’t take our word for it, if you’ve never been to a Stache Pag, there is a taste in the video above.
