Theater [2013]

The Greeks believed that theater was home to the gods.  If that’s true, then consider us blessed as we’ll be presenting not one, but TWO original theater shows this summer, for your delectation!

Just for Fun
Thursday, July 18 – Saturday, July 20, 7:30pm, $10

Come celebrate the Mainestage Readers Theatre’s 21st birthday with a glass of wine, a loaf of bread, and laughter, as they present their new-for-2013 show, Just for Fun.  A collection of jokes, skits, and we’d-rather-not-says, the MSRT style has found its place in Denmark as surely as mosquitoes, bare-feet, and sand in your shoes.  Their let’s-laugh-at-ourselves show is the perfect recipe for a mid-summer evening with friends in the air-conditioned comfort of the <DAC. Directed by Penny Morris, Brian Grennan, and Allene Westleigh.

The Line
Thursday, August 29 – Friday, August 30, 7:30pm
+ Saturday, August 31, 5pm, $10


An original family show, funded by the Maine Arts Commission and the Maine Humanities Council, and produced by the DAC in collaboration with the Denmark Historical Society, The Line hangs Denmark out to dry.  Set along a washing-line running the depth of the DAC main hall—which in turn finds use as various projection screens and surfaces—The Line will use oral testimony, recollections, and other histories of Denmark as the raw materials from which to construct a historical fiction in the great tradition of Maine’s tall tales and hum-dingers.  Written by Sarah Françoise, designed by Harry Corthell, and directed by Jamie Hook.

NOTE: In collaboration with the Denmark Historical Society, the DAC will be gathering oral histories and video recollections from Denmark residents  throughout the summer for use with this project.  If you wish to offer your testimony, please contact us at
