by BWW News Desk (Maine)

(9/19/2014) - Penobscot Theatre Company has unveiled a new school residency program to help Maine educators bring learning alive in their classrooms.

'But dramatic education and improvisational techniques have applications well beyond the study of dramatic works. Can we make the Great Bard wildly fun? You bet, but we can also help students tackle Dickens or learn to work more effectively in groups. And of course, we can go deep into the world of theatre, bringing resources many schools don't have on-site.' Three new residency programs have been designed to address schools' most common needs, and customized programs are available upon request.
