Lots of fun. An informal theater with good players and a stage right up to your seats. Parking on Main St was no problem at night; during the day you can use the nearby parking garage.
The level of performance is never disappointing. We laugh, we cry, we JUMP (Woman In Black), we meet new friends (Teen Theatre) and LOVE the people who work so hard to bring this to us!

You will be hard-pressed to find a finer group of people creating theatre... More
If your in Bangor when the Penobscot Theater has a show playing you will not want to miss it. If you live here, lucky you! You can see all the shows and bring your friends when they come to visit.
Just a fabulous place here and certainly enjoyed the whole experience. After enjoying the Theatre in New York and Philadelphia, I have to say from big to little as theatre's go, this one is A1 on my list. Of course it is not broadway but I know you will enjoy yourself. Dabbling in the Arts myself on local stages, I... More
We thoroughly enjoy every show we see. The setting is authentic, the prices are so reasonable and the performance quality is excellent. Definitely a must see in Bangor.
