Magical setting and amazing history

This is a very special location and setting. It is so magical it doesn't really even matter what performance you attend. Worth a visit just to enjoy the space.

Deertrees Theatre is an architectural and acoustic gem. The atmosphere is friendly and warm. There is first rate classical music, comedy, plays, jazz. This place deserves great support as it is indeed a National Treasure.

A charming summer venue nestled in the woods of the quaint village of Harrison. Varied scheduled throughout the summer, something for everyone with amazing natural acoustics and not a bad seat in the building. A must see is the art gallery behind the stage that features high quality art from Maine artists.

what a little gem, hidden away in the woods above Harrison. Built as an opera house and being lovingly restored. Excellent acoustics and an imaginative manager. Thoroughly recommend.

This lovely barn is a special venue to enjoy theater or live music. The auditorium seats around 300 and there really isn't a bad seat. Visit the gallery behind the barn and enjoy this unique place.( Take bug spray or apply beforehand, there are gaps in the walls...)
