Gaslight, Penobscot Theatre

Get creepy with a new show a historical theatre. A Broadway hit first produced on the West End under the title Gaslight and filmed twice as Angel Street, this classic melodrama gave rise to the popular term “gas lighting”. The tale of the Manninghams, in 19th century London appears to be the essence of Victorian tranquility. However, it is soon apparent, that things may not be as they seem. Join us as we stage this victorian melodrama in the truest sense, with no better atmosphere than the historic Bangor Opera House! Running Oct. 17- Nov. 3.
