Great location in downtown Bangor. Great plays and musicals. Very nicely redone theater from the early 1950;s. Nice staff, this local theater needs all the support they can get.

The first opera house was built in 1886 and burned down, not during the great Bangor fire in 1911, but three years later in 1914. The... More

This is a community theater that is quite plain to look at but the acting was good. We saw The mystery of Irma Vep.The play was set upwith 4 main characters but all were played by 2 actors. Lightening fast costumes made possible courtesy of velcro was a lot of fun for all and many people didn't catch that there... More

It is important to us... More

Just saw the production "Honky Tonk Angels" and have to say it was truly fantastic. This company puts on very high quality productions. This was our second show there. We saw "Cinderella" last year which hooked us. We are looking into season tickets or at least go to a few shows each year. Our two teenage kids loved the shows... More

Simply wonderful. The whole house was completely into music. The band, the ladies and the set were fabulous. I plan to see for a 2nd time.

What a fabulous time we had being members of the audience for this great show. All of the actors were excellent in their parts, makeup and their costumes exciting. The songs and singing of the gang, so good. Even though it is a small theatre compared to most, you absolutely had a good time and we all got to participate... More

I have yet to be disappointed by one of PTC's productions. From one man shows like "I am my own wife" to family musicals like Annie and Cinderella to the classics like Our Town, I leave each performance shaking my head at how lucky we are to have such talented performers and producers here in Bangor. I can't wait for... More

The Penobscot Theatre is truly a jewel in the crown of the Queen City. A super environment with theater that is consistently exceptional and professional. As a season ticket holder I get see five top flight performances for less than half the cost of one performance at The Boston Opera House. Bari Newport assembles great casts with a medley of... More

Fantastic productions of old favorites, new award winners.Can be enjoyable, thought-provoking, humorous, engrossing - but always worth seeing a production here
