Penobscot Theatre’s Tiny Thespians and Youth Troupe will get political this fall! As part of a national festival, students will perform 44 Plays for 44 Presidents. Young performers from ages 4 to 15 are eligible to sign up for our fall semester dramatic academy youth classes in order to participate in this exciting event. Students will study acting with Director Ben Layman and music with Musical Director Stephanie Colavito. Several performances will take place at the Bangor Opera House and a special presentation of excerpts of the play will be held at Brewer Auditorium on Election Day! In addition to local performances, this production will become part of the Plays for Presidents Festival in conjunction with the famous ROCK THE VOTE campaign.
