This local theater is wonderful. People seem to be very supportive of it. Much of the theater seems original and needs updating but I am sure they are working hard to restore it. Intimate and cozy.

My wife had this planned for some time. It was the end of our season in Bar Harbor and wanted to celebrate. We had dinner at a local restaurant and then took in a play here. Its not Broadway but they still did a very good job. Is nice to see Theater still alive in small town USA.

Many amenities are provided and the evening was very memorable. The staff at the theatre is very friendly and the public space is very clean. I loved the lobby and entrance way which... More

My husband and I attended this amazing performance last night. The performers were multi-talented in that they could play many instruments, they had beautiful voices and they were hilarious. They had the audience in stitches at times and at other times the emotions were sad. The story of our flag was so well done that that I was swallowing hard... More

My friend and I spent many happy hours viewing the superb performances offered and even if we didn't always like the choice of play, we always loved the acting, sets and music. After my... More

What a treat! Their performance was absolutely awesome. Actors told stories while also singing some famous songs, and some songs you may not know he recorded. All actors brought something unique to the stage and all worked very well together. Highly recommend. Venue is intimate which was nice so you felt as if they were singing directly to you. Congrats...

You can be sure it's a great show when the audience bursts into a standing ovation before the last song is even performed. Talent abounds in this semi-documentary production. Four men and one woman interchange musical instruments as they perform the songs of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. The Cash story is told in song, narrative, and photographs of... More
