The Arundel Barn Playhouse, long known for its modern stage productions, closed its doors at the end of 2015. Though it was very sad to see such a popular venue go, the upshot was that the Vinegar Hill Music Theatre took its place!
Vinegar Hill Music Theatre is housed in a post-and-beam barn in the Vinegar Hill area of Kennebunkport’s Arundel. While the basic structure of the 1887 timber barn remains unchanged, updates have transformed it for modern performances and audiences.
Wrought-iron chandeliers and velvet draperies decorate the 2,000 square foot space that also boasts a superb sound-system. The theater can seat up to 200, including a balcony and box seats, yet retains an intimacy with the stage no matter where you’re seated. Vinegar Hill also has a rustic hand-built bar and a grass patio area with globe lighting, and plush gardens.
Vinegar Hill Music Theatre welcomes a variety of genres under its roof. The season runs from June through October with cabaret, classical, rock, folk, and blues, and more on the schedule.
The Vinegar Hill 2018 season includes stars like George Winston, Rita Coolidge, Joe Diffie, and The Kingston Trio. In fact, the 2018 season kicks off on June 15th with The Drifters!
