About Deertrees Theatre, Ltd.

Deertrees Theatre was founded as a summer theater by the distinguished New York director and singing coach Enrica Clay Dillon on her estate in Harrison and completed in 1936. Early supporters of the theater included Helen Hayes, Rudy Vallee, and Humphrey Bogart. Well-known New York producer Bela Blau brought famous performers to the stage at Deertrees including Ethyl Barrymore, Edward Everett Horton, Arthur Treacher, and many others. The theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Maine State Register of Historic Landmarks.

Over the decades, the mission of the theater has evolved and we now seek to present concerts in a broad array of musical styles during the summer season from early July to late August. During the 2019 season, about 20 concerts of chamber music, jazz, folk, and rock were presented as well as several locally produced plays.
