I have worked with Acorn as a performer, a volunteer and now a Board Member. Acorn's commitment to supporting the theatrical arts community is unparelleled. I started my relationship with Acorn through it's Maine Playwright's Festival. I had taken a long hiatus from theatrical pursuits and found this opportunity to be a wonderful way of getting my feet wet again. My experience with the Festival was incredibly positive and rewarding. Acorn brings together passionate and talented individuals who have a deep desire to make quality theater accessible to the public. Programs like Naked Shakespeare help draw in audiences who might otherwise never experience live theater. I cannot reccomend Acorn Productions highly enough.
