BWW Reviews: Strong Voices Perk Up TAM's Gilbert and SullivanBWW Reviews: Strong Voices Perk Up TAM's Gilbert and Sullivan
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold (Maine)

(9/22/2014) - As has been the tradition for quite a few seasons, Theater at Monmouth ends its season with a production of one of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic operettas. This year's choice, The Sorcerer, is a frothy, pleasant entertainment enhanced by the strong vocal merits of much of the cast. The pristine neo- baroque gem of a theatre in Cumston Hall is the perfect venue for singing. The acoustic - unmiked - is crisp, clear, focused, and allows for the ringing delivery and coloratura fun of Sullivan's music.

Penobscot Theatre Company Unveils New School Residency ProgramPenobscot Theatre Company Unveils New School Residency Program
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. 'For years, our teaching artists have taken their talents on the road through our popular Shakespeare in the Schools program,' said Director of Education Amy Roeder. '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.
