We’d like you to meet one of our current artists in residence Aubrey Saverino! Aubrey joins us for our world premiere of INK, originating the role of Mary Rowlandson. Come see her stellar performance this weekend! Aubrey Saverino is a graduate of The Old Globe/USD Professional Acting Training Program where she received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Theater. In addition to her graduate training, Aubrey received a Bachelor’s Degree in Theater from Occidental College and has also studied abroad at The London Dramatic Academy. Aubrey shared the following entry with us:
“Currently enjoying a couple days off after a full week of tech rehearsals, previews and our opening performance of INK this past weekend. The audiences have been wonderful, responsive and deeply curious to dig beneath the surface of the show during our talk backs. This is especially exciting considering these are the first people ever to see a fully produced production of this play– exciting for both the audience and the actors! It is a rare treat to be the first person to breathe life into the words of a play for the first time and I am grateful for the opportunity to be collaborator in Penobscot Theatre’s first-ever world premiere. There are always challenges and risks involved in putting up a new show, but that is exactly what makes it a deeply enriching, intensely creative process. Looking forward to seeing it grow over the next couple weeks!
I also plan to fill up the rest of my free time exploring Bangor and the surrounding New England scenery. I will be heading back to New York City at the end of the run, so I am soaking up as much sprawling natural beauty and space as I can! Some of my favorite outings so far have been hiking up Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park (what a view!), wandering around the Bangor City Forest, and discovering the immensely talented artistic community right here in downtown during the Bangor ArtWalk. Suggestions for other must-see Maine sights are certainly welcome!
