The Bagaduce Theatre was founded in July 2016. Named for the beautiful river it overlooks, the theatre is situated in an 1850's barn on the Fowler Farm in
Brooksville, Maine. The theatre's first production, "O Brave New World: Shakespeare Live!" was an original adaptation by Monique Fowler of Shakespeare's "The Tempest." Woven into the story were
scenes from others of the great Shakespearean classics: "Romeo and Juliet", "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "Macbeth" and "As You Like It." The season also included a staged reading series of both
classic and contemporary plays.
The Fowler Farm is an 150 acre coastal property on the Bagaduce River in Brooksville,Maine. The property's first owner was Andrew Webber. It was then sold to
the Quaker and farmer, George Mills, in the nineteenth century. Rear Admiral J.W. Fowler purchased the "Mills Point Farm" in 1972 from Ms. Ada Mills Tapley, then 92. Admiral Fowler's son, Dr. William
Fowler, designated the land forever wild when he first placed it with the Castine Conservation Trust. It is now with the statewide Maine Heritage Trust. The Bagaduce Theatre is dedicated
to the Fowler Family legacy.
