My wife and I are retired and vacation in Bar Harbor in the early summer and fall. We discovered ImprovAcadia 5 years ago and liked it so much we go to their shows a few times a week during each of our visits. This is a real comedy jewel! Each show is different and all are very funny. The actors are top notch. The owners, who perform with Second City on a cruise ship in the winter, go to Chicago each year to audition actors for the next summer. They bring in about 25 improvisors who make up casts of 4 or 5 and change over every few weeks throughout the season. Most actors we’ve seen at ImprovAcadia have performed on the Second City Main Stage, Second City Touring Company or Second City Boat Company. These are seasoned, well trained improvisors with lots of talent! This is rare to find outside of Chicago. And you are a lot closer here. It’s a small, intimate theater (~50 seat) affording everyone an up-close experience. There is table service offering local ice cream, nachos, salsa, wine, various beers and mixed drinks, all reasonably priced. There is no pressure to buy anything. It is a very friendly and cordial atmosphere. At $16 an adult ($12 children) this is a real bargain. If you are looking for a fun night out and want to laugh really hard, this is the place to go!
