PTC has a long and impressive history and too many cool things going on in their space to name all of them. Two highlights: the Northern Writes New Play Festival and a mad commitment to education and outreach.
Beyond the theatre’s mainstage season, Penobscot Theatre’s educational and outreach programming is the largest in the state, serving thousands of Maine students in schools with workshops.
PTC has chosen fellow New Engander, John Quincy Adams, as their contribution to the video project. Very interesting fact about John Quincy Adams and Maine…when JQA was Secretary of State, he was instrumental in the negotiations that defined the border between Maine and Canada…this sounds simple but apparently it was a HUGE, complicated nightmare. Much like mounting a production of 44 Plays for 44 Presidents!
We’re so thrilled to have Penobscot Theatre on board. Their commitment to education and new work makes them near and dear to us. And we’re so glad to have Maine in in our list of states! We’re closing in on half the states in the union, now, people.
Welcome aboard, PTC!
