Staff are great getting at thru the ticket line and assisted with seating. The seats were good but a little small but ok for the time in them. The bathrooms were clean. Most important the performances were amazing and fun. My favorite part that was initially unexpected was that the Bangor Hamane Society presented a dog that was up for... More

Just loved your production of Oliver ! Such talented children who have clearly worked so hard at perfecting their roles. So nice that they can work with an orchestra. Fagan was outstanding !!! This theatre surely must be a gem in your community. I hope they can replace those seats and keep going another 43 years. I will surely be... More

This was our first time visiting the Penobscot Theatre as well as our first time in Bangor. The show "Murder for Two" was hilarious. Both performers were extremely talented actors as well as musicians, and the chemistry they had in tandem was as good as any I've seen. Absolutely brilliant the way Danielle could switch between characters with her voice... More

The dynamic and multifaceted performance tonight of Murder For Two by Jason Cohen, Danielle Erin Rhodes, and the Production Crew of the Penobscot Theater Company totally killed it tonight, an absolutely thrilling show. They make you fall in love with their characters in just under two hours.

What a great show! I would highly recommend if you are in the area while this show is playing, you go see it. Both Danielle and Jason gave a spectacular performance.

PTC is absolutely amazing. Not sure why I hadn't tried any show sooner. Having lived in the area 17 years now, didn't attend a show until the last 5 years. Boy what a mistake. We have not seen a bad show since. PTCs programs and presentations are phenomenal. SO worth every penny. And what a gorgeous playhouse. Cannot say enough... More

Latest visit was a group of several friends--we saw "Calendar Girls" and loved it! The energy and humor was infectious, and the set was terrific. This is not Broadway, but it is a great introduction to a high quality small town theater experience!

So we went to see rock of ages. Keep in mind we are the NYC area. The show reminded me of what the local high school would perform. Not NY off Broadway if that's what you are thinking you are gonna get. What really bothered me is that it was SO stuffy and warm in the theater and they have... More
