I always attend at least 1 performance on my trips to Mt. Desert Isle. Quality performances in a very rustic setting...which in my opinion adds to the charm. Very friendly & accomodating staff.

Saw The 39 Steps, which was very, very funny. After the performance my husband said he was tired from laughing so much! What a fun evening, and great acting. Did not know what to expect but was so pleasantly satisfied with the show and the quaint theater.

We saw a play called "UNNECESSARY FARCE" and it was awful. Now, much of the blame does go to the script (which was lame), but most of the acting was just not very good. There were two players worth mentioning (in a cast of six), but now I can't find their photos or names on the theatre's web site (one... More

Agatha Christie seemed to suit the intimate MDI venue, but the cast was uneven and the pace was slow. Three actors were heads above the others in energy level. One young woman bravely coped with a nosebleed while carrying the action and managing a consistent accent. She alone was worth the modest admission. We will try it again while next... More

I saw an Agatha Christie mystery here this summer, and also saw another one here about ten years ago. Both were fun; it's hard not to enjoy the plot twists of a Christie mystery. But they were only enjoyable despite the acting, which was very sub-par. This is a professional theatre company, with actors from all over the country, but... More

This is the second year we've stayed in Somesville - and I'm disappointed I didn't discover this last time we were here. We saw their Agatha Christie mystery with our kids (14 and 10) and really enjoyed it. For a local theatre in a quiet little town, it was a great value. Our daughter said she was looking forward to...

I have been around school and community theater most of my life. I am always up for a good show. Picked up the Acadia weekly magazine to look for things do on my week on MDI. I came across Acadia Repertory Theater. New Agatha Christie Murder Mystery opening this week. I called and got my tickets for opening night. I... More

Recently, I spent a Sunday afternoon on Mount Desert Island at Acadia Repertory Theatre. The play was a one woman act of Shirley Valentine. "Shirley Valentine" was a cult classic movie in the eighties. I loved the movie so much that I visited the film location on the island of Mykonos! The story revolves around a middle aged woman who...

Very reasonable price. Reserve tickets by phone without a credit card - they trust you! Single-actress performance of Shirley Valentine was tremendous.
