Great community resource.

Make sure to take in The Slambovian Circus of Dreams on Oct. 30. I have no idea what that is, but it sure sounds exciting.

First time at the Chocolate Church had a wonderful evening. The play was excellent seating great. The only negative thing was it was a little chilly they had fans on so take a sweater.

The Chocolate Church presents many acts, musical, theater, dance in a repurposed 1839 Congregational Church. Acts include Coig, a Celtic group from Cape Breton, Judy Collins, Schooner Fare, Pretty Ladies Sing Soprano, Or Grace Kelly, a terriffic jazz musician with her band. Every seat is good, prices are reasonable, acoustics and lightly are good as is available parking.

What a wonderful performing arts center! We saw Schooner Fare there. The sound was great and there isn't a bad seat in the house!

We were in Bath looking for a place to eat lunch and I saw this on my Yelp app. I was intrigued by the name, so we looked for it. The church is exactly the color of milk chocolate, which is how I presume it got its name. The architecture is really interesting, so I got out and took pictures... More

Paula Cole’s April 2015 concert marked our first visit to the Chocolate Church Arts Center and we loved it. What a great venue! Great seats, great acoustics and perfect for a very intimate performance. A vastly different experience than the State Theater in Portland, and for us, much preferred.

A theater built in the 1800 might be cold but this was cozy warm. The sound of the background music was "away" so we didn't del we were a part of the musical. Voices were lost when they turned from the audience but with only two ceiling miles or was quite good. The volunteer staff were very friendly. It's not... More

Church built in the late 1800's that now has concerts. Intimate setting and great acoustics. Melissa Manchester concert was magical. Plenty of free street parking.

As we walked by we heard some interesting music. Went in -- a band setting up. We liked the sound (folk/blues) a lot. Was a free concert (was scheduled for outdoors but the threat of storms forced a last minute change of venue. Acoustics were good.We loved the band. The building, an old, converted (!) church, now is a performance... More
