Deertrees Theatre  

TripAdvisor® Traveler Rating

TripAdvisor Overall Rating 14 Reviews

In 1936 a marvelous opera house was built on the site of an old deer run in the forest above the village of Harrison, Maine. It was designed by Harrison G. Wiseman, a famous theatre architect with the instruction to, “Design the most acoustically and technically perfect theatre possible”. Constructed of rose hemlock in the Adirondack Style with hand carved fixtures and near perfect acoustics, the then 350 seat, now 300 seat theatre was considered as fine as any on Broadway.
Now listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, Deertrees Theatre is operated as a non-profit Theatre and presents an eclectic offering of performances, both musical and theatrical and workshops.

Beautiful!
We went to the Beatles tribute band not knowing anything about this theater. Amazing to find such an acoustical gem in a building that looks a bit like a barn. The seating is first come first serve...

Tartan Terrors
This show was sold out, and for good reason. This group is excellent. The theatre itself is a gem - windows open to the great outdoors and wonderful acoustics.

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.
