Summer shows are about to begin at Penobscot Theatre Company! Penobscot Theatre’s Dramatic Academy students will perform a variety of plays they have developed while also attending classes and workshops. Over forty students have studied acting, voice, stage combat, dance, and clowning in order to share their new experiences with the community in a performance setting. The Session 1 Series will feature productions that are based in Shakespearean plays and sonnets with a particular focus on versions of Romeo & Juliet. All shows are available to the public and most are family friendly!
