What a wonderful theatre! I had a couple of free days during a business trip and the theatre was recommended by a friend. The performance was very well done, the venue was warm and comfortable, and acoustics were great. I recommend it and will make a point of attending another performance on the next visit!

We have enjoyed many, many top rated performances at the Penobscot Theatre Company in Bangor. For a small theater, PTC delivers the best each time; amazing performers, sets, lighting, sound, etc. Bangor is lucky to have such a talented group in our small city. PTC is one of the best attractions in the entire area.

I subscribed to PTC Digitus Theatrum for some entertainment during the Covid-19 crisis. Last week I listened to "Ghost Postcards from Maine" which is a collection of six ghost stories set in Maine. These were very well done and are really entertaining. I listened to them again, one at a time, a few days later. Great actors, sound and visual impressions! Perfect for an eerie fall evening! I also watched "The Glitch Witch." It's designed more for the young, but I'm an old timer and enjoyed watching something that was light, fun and entertaining. There is a wide selection of different types of shows available at various times throughout the winter. Check this out. It's well done and transmits beautifully on the computer, cell phone or smart TV.

The Penobscot Theatre is a treasure for Bangor. While the Theatre remains physically closed during Covid, it is alive in spirit. The theatre is located in the old opera house and offers a variety of plays during the year. It is in the downtown part of Bangor. During the temporary closure you can find the theatre online. It is worth a visit if you support culture.

Thanks! Yes! We are taking this time to renovate the opera house bathrooms, upgrade our sound system and catalogue our 47 years of costumes and props. Additionally, we are offering an ecclectic season of original work we are creating for this new hybrid medium, called Digitus Theatrum - certainly a season unlike any other we have ever produced before or even imagined! So far we have subscribers from all over the world supporting this endeavor. We look forward to sharing the work of Penobscot Theatre Company and of introducing more folks to historic, beautiful, fascinating Bangor, Maine!

Always so impressed with the quality of our experience at the PTC. The acting is top-notch, the sets are stunning, and the theater is gorgeous. We regularly attend theater in NYC and London and walk away from the PTC thinking that the performance is the same level of what we see in the two large cities known for theater. We are so fortunate that PTC is here and providing outstanding art for the community!

We saw "Don't Dress for Dinner." This is a classic comedy of mistaken identity and wacky characters, made even more special by the talented actors. We particularly enjoyed the performance of Jen Shepard of Improv Acadia fame, as Suzette. This theater is a gem!

I have been attending Penobscot Theatre Company shows since I moved to Maine in 2012 and have thoroughly enjoyed their superbly acted productions. The artistic direction, sets, music, support staff, and even their new seats are top-notch. Go see whatever is on stage. They never disappoint.

The Penobscot Theatre has been THE cultural go-to place in Bangor for decades. Each season a wide variety of shows are offered at a reasonable price that will appeal to most audiences. Although there have been several artistic directors over the years, the quality of the productions have remained high.

Wonderful venue and theater company. Excellent productions and talent. We have become subscribers for season tickets, to make sure we don't miss anything and help support this wonderful addition to the Bangor "arts scene". Well worth visiting if you are a resident of the area or just passing thru.

The productions are terrific but truly wish the pool of actors would rotate or expand. Seems Bangor would be big enough to keep a variety of talent to suite special rolls.
