My 12 year old son has been attending classes at Acorn for over two years. He has thoroughly enjoyed his time there, and has learned a lot about acting. The instructors have been wonderful and supportive! The summer camp is great, and offers a rewarding experience with other kids who also have the acting bug. I can't recommend it enough!! It's a great asset to the community.
Acorn Productions is the only theater group in southern Maine that supports the theater community in an inclusive and productive fashion. I have taken acting, auditioning and playwriting classes at Acorn and they have experienced and fabulous instructors. The Maine Playwrights Festival is one of a kind here in Maine and the only place I have found truly thought provoking theater since my return. Naked Shakespeare brings 'high art' to the pubic like no other group in the area. Acorn's regular staged readings of local playwright's work, their audition newsletter, their kid's programs and phyzigig and hosting an annual auditioning event are just some of the ways they nurture theater artists of all ages and levels of experience. I would be bereft living here in southern Maine without this organization.
