Theatre of Awesome was a great attempt to bring cultural activities to a small retail shopping outlet town. Tucked away one block from Main St and the famous LL Bean Flagship Store, it provided alternative entertainment to shopping. Unfortunately the Theatre of Awesome is now closed.

My husband and I attended the Downeast Hysterical Society performance in July and enjoyed it very much. It was a bit slow at the beginning but by the end I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. It's the smallest theater I've ever been in but it was well worth the price of admission. The blueberry soda... More

Not really a "theater". More like a room with chairs. It is dated and awkward. But, because it is small it is wonderful, can't explain it but we like it.

We've been to the Theater of Awesome several times in the past year -- and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves each time. The good news is that their Halloween Show is no exception -- the bad news is that Audiobody may be leaving the Theater of Awesome early next year.... Our most recent visit was for their Halloween Show....and, in keeping with... More

We saw Tim Sample here this past weekend and the venue fit his quirky Maine humor. We were pleasantly and efficiently greeted and sat in comfortable movie theater seats. There were unique snacks available, as reported by previous reviewers. It was a very memorable evening.

You will laugh harder at the Theatre of Awesome more than any other destination in Freeport! They are witty, hysterical and captivate an audience of all ages. I thought that it would be a great time-killer for the kids and my husband while I shopped the outlets, but after seeing the Audiobody show yesterday, I'd MUCH rather be entertained by... More

I have been to the theater many times with my husband. We invited my niece and sister to a movie this summer while they were vacationing from Louisville, KY. They enjoyed the theater and movie! Delicious popcorn! Pleasant staff!

We saw the Tardy Brothers, and loved the show. My 5 year old was thrilled, and the grown ups loved it, too. It was an inexpensive break from shopping, and something my son will remember with great joy. I highly recommend this fun, entertaining venue for everyone!

We had a great time! Would recommend to any family looking for kid friendly entertainment. We look forward to returning to the theater for another show. Well worth the cost of admission.
