Vinegar Hill Music Theatre
New to the entertainment scene this live music venue offers the finest in national, regional, and local music talent throughout the summer and fall season. A gracious, historic barn, Vinegar Hill offers an intimate venue that provides entertainers with a superlative, vibrant setting to showcase their talents. Showcasing a variety of genres, like cabaret, classical, rock, folk, and blues, Vinegar Hill Music Theatre resides in the former Arundel Barn Playhouse, a timber barn known as the Smith Sister’s Farm. Located in an area of Kennebunkport’s Arundel, historically known as Vinegar Hill, the venue’s name honors that history.
When attending one of our performances, arrive early to enjoy the charming outdoor garden area and one of our signature classic cocktails from the handmade rustic garden bar. Replete with social seating and strung globe lights, this area offers a quiet respite so you can relax and enjoy the performance.
About Vinegar Hill
Tim Harrington, managing partner for Vinegar Hill and the Kennebunkport Resort Collection, acquired the Arundel Barn Playhouse from Adrienne Grant, the founder of the playhouse, upon her retirement earlier this year. A longtime fan of the playhouse, Tim wanted to continue the tradition of offering live entertainment in Arundel and the Kennebunks and had long admired the historic barn setting. Moving in a direction of live music rather than plays, Tim hopes to celebrate the local and regional talent in the area, along with bringing some national acts to the barn. Tim is passionate about integrating the music theater into the fabric of the community, offering opportunities for children’s theater and not-for-profits to utilize the space.
Tim is thrilled to have accomplished actor and entertainer George Dvorsky joining the music theater team as the creative director. While on Broadway, George appeared in the title role of The Scarlet Pimpernel and as Henry Spofford in the revival of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. His other Broadway credits include the Tony Award–winning Passion, as well as Marilyn: An American Fable and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. George has performed all over the world and brings his diverse experience to creating a performance schedule rich with talent and diversity.
