The Orono area has an incredible amount to offer lovers of the arts and theater. The Bangor Opera House, home to the Penobscot Theatre Company, is located in the heart of downtown Bangor, just minutes from Dirigo Pines. The Theatre offers a great variety of wonderful performances, including two upcoming plays – Doctor Cerberus from Oct. 22-Nov. 8 and It’s a Wonderful Life from Dec. 3-27.
Doctor Cerberus is a Maine premiere, just in time for the Halloween season. It tells the tale of 13-year-old Franklin Robertson, who’s never fit in and finds comfort in watching horror movies. Meanwhile, It’s a Wonderful Life will be here for the holiday season, offering an interactive adaptation of Frank Capra’s cinematic classic featuring George Bailey in 1940’s Bedford Falls.
