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 theatre company. In our quaint performance space, which seats 148, 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!

The play was a spoof on Agatha Christie done by experienced actors. The English accents were believable and the play was full of litle twists and turns. The story line was creditable and was not overcome by the send up of Ms. Christie. Mary Paola...More

The show is rather dark and confusing given that actors often portray different roles. The actors were all very good, but the play was not all that engaging. I prefer to see something more lighthearted while on vacation and this was not it. We were...More

We saw a production of Sherlock Holmes and the Suicide Club. This was one of my son's first memorable experiences with a theatre production, and he was completely engrossed from the first scene. Small theatre, quality cast, very enjoyable evening.

The biggest disappointment in this otherwise entertaining play was the hopelessly miscast Sherlock. He did not have the authority or presence required of an actor to play this part . His lack of voice projection affected the overall enjoyment level of the play The people...More
