Penobscot Theatre Company
OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
To produce high-quality, professional theatre works that inspire the imagination and cultivate a lifelong passion for the art form.
For more than 40 years, Penobscot Theatre Company has grown in the heart of Maine. Its current vitality is a credit to the vision of the founders, the hard work of all those affiliated with the organization over the years, and the generosity of the community.
Penobscot Theatre Company has its roots in the Acadia Repertory Theatre, founded in Bangor in 1973 by George Vafiadis and Lou Collier. Acadia Rep presented 97 productions in Bangor before Penobscot Theatre Company was incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 1983. The School For Wives was the first play officially produced by the nonprofit. Acadia Rep still operates on Mount Desert Island as a separate entity, while Penobscot Theatre Company is the only year-round, professional regional theatre in Northern Maine.
