'Maine's Most Enchanting Playhouse'
In 1936 a stunning opera house was built on the site
of an old deer run in the forest above the friendly
village of Harrison, Maine.
The theatre was the vision of opera singer Enrica
Clay-Dillon. It was designed by Harrison G. Wiseman,
a famous theatre architect of the day who was
instructed to “Create 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 a diverse schedule of performances and events, both musical and theatrical, every summer.
Thank you to all who attend, support, volunteer and give of their artistic talent to make this
"Maine's Most Enchanting Playhouse".
We greatly look forward to welcoming you in 2021.
President, Deertrees Board of Directors
