Through drama, this group brings the mission of the church to the congregation and the wider community. Shows are chosen for topical relevance or inspiring message. UU Theater also raises money for the church through sale of tickets, refreshments, and playbill ads.
UU Theater received the Anne Kempers Award for Social Justice from the regional Northern New England District, presented in 2010, at the Northern New England District’s Annual Spring Conference. This award is given to a congregation that has done the most to support human rights and social justice activism during the past year. The District also nominated UU Theater for the UUA’s Bennett Award for Congregational Action on Human Justice & Social Action.

Roxie Devoe produced our first drag show at UU Theater for Valentines’ Day 2013. Since then, Christopher Dufour has directed and hosted numerous drag shows to benefit the church, which are now produced at the Elks Lodge in Lewiston. They have been known as Demons and Divas, Ho Ho Holiday, Wings of Spring, and more. We are so grateful to Christopher and his stable of performers who donate their time and effort to us!
