This restored gem of Bangor is worth the visit. The Bangor Opera House restored, rebuilt. Go to any performance. Sit back in the gilded age. The ambience of this small theater brings you into the 1920s immediately. They have done a wonderful restoration of this theater. Currently they are replacing the seats, you can have your own seat for $325... More

We went to see Papermaker last night. It was superb as usual. All of the plays we have been to are outstanding and A++ rating. Drama, musicals, humor are all great and the variety of each season is outstanding. The theater even has a small concession with wonderful cookies, water, bottled soda, wine, beer, pretzels, dried fruits, and candy bars.... More

Twelve years of annual subscriptions have proven high quality of Penobscot Theatre productions to my family. We especially love the Maine themed offerings from Mainer playwrights. The professional actors and the local talents are excellent. The ticket prices are remarkably affordable for the high level of professional entertainment.

My experience of Penobscot Theatre Company is all positive. I just saw Lumberjacks In Love and it was amazing. The sets at PTC always blow me away they are so well done! And the acting is wonderful. Whether you go for a musical or a drama, you will not be disappointed. Have fun!!

My husband and I received a gift card from our oldest son for Christmas. We often forget about the great shows our local theatre provides for us! They did not disappoint with the Lumberjacks in Love performance. This is a great show with lots of laughs and fun music! We would highly recommend it....a great evening of entertainment.

We had never been to a show here and had a great time. The seats are a little uncomfortable but they are planning to update them this year. It appears they are the original seats so that is pretty cool. The show was well done and the set was amazingly done. Definitely a true passion for those involved. We will... More

Went to see Lumberjacks in Love. A series of greats...great show...great performances...great set. This didn't include how great the staff is. I don't understand why I don't attend more often, as it's only across the river. Thanks to everyone for a great evening.
