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 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.
As home to the Deertrees New Repertory Company, the Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival, the Back-Stage Art Gallery and the Salt Lick Café, Deertrees has become and remains, ‘Maine’s Most Enchanting Playhouse.’
We look forward to welcoming you.
Andrew Harris, Artistic & Executive Director
