Reviewed September 5, 2013

I have been going to the playhouse for about 5 years and have really enjoyed all the of the performances that I have seen. This year I saw All Shook Up (music of Elvis) and Always, Patsy (music of Patsy Cline) and Chicago. They were excellent. Missed the Andrews Brothers and hope they bring it back. The playhouse is in an old barn, but it does have AC and is very comfortable. Wonderful friendly people.

This is a very quaint and utterly fabulous theater.

We went with friends to see a Summer Stock production of "Chicago". ABP is a wonderful off-the-beaten-path theater to see any production in.

The theater itself is inside an 1880's era converted barn. The ambiance is amazing with poster boards and pictures of all the productions performed there since the theater's opening in 1998. The talent in the productions range from novice to very polished and accomplished actors. This combination adds such great diversity to any show and gives a fresh new spin to each one.

Don't miss out. Head to the ABP for a night of excellent theater.

The 2913 Season is off to a great beginning with the production "The Andrews Brothers." Outstanding performances are given by Mark Edwards, Elliot Lane and Zack Steele as the Andrews Brothers and Beatrice Crosbie as Peggy. The musicians for this show are truly amazing. Artistic Director, Adrienne Grant, is be credited for the steady improvement in the shows in this incredible old barn dating back to the early 1800's. The barn became a theatre in 1996. It was nice to see people arriving early just to enjoy sitting in the yard and enjoying the ambiance of this charming area which is so close to busy Highway 1 but yet so far removed. The "Andrews Brothers" runs until July 2 and will run until June 29. It will be followed by 'Chicago," "Shrek the Musical," All Shook Up" and "Always Patsy Cline." Great parking for the handicapped!

This is our second time at the Arundel Barn Playhouse. The atmosphere is comfortable and truly fitting the name. The entertainers for both plays were fabulous. The first play we saw was more of a mystery, the second play we saw, was a Christmas play with great dancers and singers. It reminded me of the old Christmas movie with Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney and other actors who go back to my childhood days. I advise anyone planning to attend to order tickets around April/May in order to get good seats. The playhouse is only 15 mins. or so from the Kennebunkport town center. Tickets are very reasonable. My husband and I chose the matinees each time.Parking is right on the premises and there are no stairs to climb.

During the summer of 2012, we have had the opportunity to see several of the performances at the Arundel Barn Playhouse. This has been a great season for this group! Presently, through September 1st, " Beyond the Rainbow....the Judy Garland Musical" is a presentation not to be missed! The incredible performance of Sheira Feurstein is simply astounding! She has mastered all of the vocal qualities which made Garland a legend. Her counterpart, Jane Bruce, who played the role of Garland (in memory) was also outstanding. The entire cast was great!
