In 1936 a marvelous opera house was built on the site of an old deer run in the forest above the friendly village of Harrison, Maine. It was designed by Harrison G. Wiseman, a famous theatre architect, instructed 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
300 seat theatre was considered as fine as any on Broadway!
Now listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the theatre
is operated as a non-profit organization and presents an diverse schedule of performances and events, both musical and theatrical.
The regular summer season at Deertrees Theatre has ended -- and ended strong with enthusiasm for the programming and audience numbers up in every category including several "packed" houses with audiences seated even outside on the lawn! There will be, however, one more very special event which is described below. We hope you will join us for a fun-filled afternoon and/or evening in support of a very worthy cause -- our nation's Veterans!
Thank you for your attendance this season, your encouraging comments, and your continued support for Deertrees Theatre. Later this fall we will send those of you on our monthly communications list a more detailed newsletter with stories, facts, figures, and photos related to this summer, as well as, preliminary plans for 2018.
We hope to see many of you again next season for our 82nd year!
