Penobscot Theatre Company Hosts RACE TO THE STAGE 5K Today

Penobscot Theatre Company announces its second annual RACE TO THE STAGE, a 5K road race with a dramatic twist - runners in costume! The race will start at 9:00 am, today, June 21, in downtown Bangor. It is designed to promote healthy living and celebrate the central role of the theatre in our community.

"We started this tradition last year and drew nearly 100 participants, most of whom totally embraced the costume concept," said PTC's managing director Mary Budd. "This year, we're hoping to increase our numbers and ramp up the foolish fashion. The more outrageous the costume the better and, of course, participants' creativity will be rewarded!" Prizes will be awarded for best times and best costumes.

Walkers and leashed pets are welcome.
