There will be a brief intermission.

The Acadia Repertory Theatre, for the first time since its founding in 1973, will not produce a summer season this year.

Below is a message from Producing Director, Andrew Mayer:

Like every other theatre in the country right now, the Acadia Rep has struggled with how safely to invite audiences and staff into the Masonic Hall in the era of COVID-19, and we have concluded that there simply is no way to do it. Even if government strictures allow public gatherings at some point this summer, we don't believe we could guarantee a safe and comfortable experience, especially for the considerable number of our audience members in the high-risk categories.

So we will take a brief intermission this year. We will leave the ghost light out, batten down the hatches, and prepare to return stronger than ever in 2021. We believe that everyone will need the fellowship, joy, laughter, and shared experience that only live theatre can provide more than ever, once it becomes possible again!

Although our overhead is not onerous and our expenses should be manageable for the year, we will definitely need some help! We are working on ways to keep engaging virtually with our loyal audience. We ask anyone in a position to help to please visit our website or Facebook page, and let us know.

It will be yet another trial, in a year already far too full of them, to imagine the Masonic Hall empty and forlorn this summer. But that beautiful old building has lasted for a century, and those cedar walls will still be there to welcome us all back next year! In the meantime, we intend to find online ways to keep engaging our audience, however we can. Everyone please stay safe, and we can't wait until the day we can greet you again in Somesville!

You can still become a subscriber or patron to support the theatre, or reach out to art@acadiarep.com for more information on how to donate to the theatre during this dark season.

The Acadia Rep is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

The Acadia Rep is closed for the 2020 summer season.

Welcome to the Acadia Rep!

Since 1973, the Acadia Repertory Theatre has made its home in the rustic Masonic Hall in Somesville, on Mt. Desert Island, Maine. We are surrounded by the wonders of Acadia National Park, which comprises over half of the island. Mountains, pine trees, lakes and ocean all provide a perfect setting for a summer stock theatre company.


This season continues this tradition of live professional theatre on Mt. Desert Island, which has been a summer highlight for countless visitors to this spectacular vacation idyll. We know that we are extremely fortunate to be able to do our work in such a sublime setting, and we enjoy sharing this special experience with you, our faithful friends and guests. Since our first season, we have presented over 250 productions created by the talents of over 700 performers, designers and technicians. Each opening night has been a special thrill for us and our audiences as well.

Acadia National Park

In our quaint performance space, which seats 148 (and is now air conditioned!), we have presented an impressive mix of comedies, dramas, mysteries and children's theatre. The relaxed and informal atmosphere here at the theatre provides the perfect ending to a day spent touring the delights of Mt. Desert Island.

Each season we select a blend of plays which we hope will delight your whole family. Please join us here in Somesville and make LIVE THEATRE a part of your summer in Maine!
