2021 Season Update

All of us at Vinegar Hill Music Theatre have missed you.  We’ve missed live music and gathering as a community.  Since our closure last March, we’ve been longing to bring music and connection back to our community in a safe way.  We are thrilled to announce that we finally feel that we are in position to do so!  This 2021 season, Vinegar Hill will emerge from forced hibernation with great new programming and practices designed to ensure your safety and health.  

Our goal is for each guest to arrive and leave with a smile (even if that smile is hidden behind a mask).

New! Outdoor Programing for 2021

Drive-Up Concerts & Movies

We have added a 16′ x 20′ outdoor stage to our parking lot for the season for rain or shine Drive Up Concerts and Movies. Pre-order concessions and car hop service available. We will be previewing our first Drive Up Movie and Concert Memorial Day Weekend.

Expanded Sunday Chill at the Hill and Maker’s Market

Previewing Memorial Day & Father’s Day Weekends. Join us on Sundays throughout the summer to enjoy afternoon cocktail specials, live music, food trucks, and a new Farmer’s and Makers Market. Enjoy the gardens in your pods and walk the parking lot for eats and local artisan products.

Limited (For Now) Barn Performances & Movies

Limited Barn Performances & Movies

We will be offering Family Fun Movies in the barn with an earlier kid-friendly showtime and socially-distanced seating.  Concessions will be available as a pre-order when you reserve your seat: simply check in, pick up your Take Over Bag, and head to your seats (seat map will be provided at check in).  Family Fun Movies will be seated by groups, with a maximum of 6 people per group, and all groups will be seated at least 6 feet apart from each other.

Night at the Cabaret

Cocktail tables of 2-6 guests will be available for our Night at the Cabaret series.  Pre-order small plates & sweets available for pre-order.  Beverage reorders will be available during the first hour of the performance. 

Limited-Capacity Season Favorites Series

Music returns to Vinegar Hill! We are happy to say that we are planning some special shows which we will be announcing soon, with limited premium seating and full balcony rentals available. Our stage will soon be full of sound, light, and talent; and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome you back to enjoy it with us!

Vinegar Hill is Committed to the Safety of Our Guests and Team

Our first concern is the safety of all our guests and staff. We have pledged ourselves to the KPT Promise, a campaign devised by our community business leaders in order to uphold the highest possible safety standards. We are also adhering to the guidance put forth by Keep Maine Healthy, as well as the Association for Performing Arts Professionals. will be instituting temperature checks and a symptom checklist review for all guests attending indoor performances. Masks are required at all events and must be worn at all times outside your designated group area and when not eating or drinking. 
*Air conditioning system features newly installed HEPA filters. We will be employing a number of strategies designed to increase ventilation in accordance with CDC guidelines. We have also added air purifiers to restrooms and other highly trafficked areas of the property.
*Hand Sanitizer Stations provided at all entrances, exits, concessions, and various marked areas in the barn.
We are hopeful that as we enter the warmer seasons, the direction of the pandemic will continue to shift in a positive direction. In the meantime, we are confident that our proposed plan will enable our guests to have a safe and happy visit to our property. We thank you for your cooperation keeping our community healthy as we begin gathering together again at Vinegar Hill. 

We hope to be able to announce details for our Fall 2021 Season soon!
