Patsy may be gone, but Becky has arrived!

Grabbed a full family photo outside by the sign!

One of our favorite things at PTC is the unique opportunity we have to get to know artists from all over the country.  As a professional theater company, we are lucky to be able to hire designers, directors, musicians, actors, and many other talented folks from New York to California and everywhere in between.  It is always a great to get to know these people “from away;” they bring with them a wealth of stories, skills, and experiences that in turn enhance the productions we are able to provide our audiences.  Yet what may be the most fun, is seeing what these temporary Mainers discover about “the way life should be.”  As anyone who saw Always….Patsy Cline can attest to, we were very lucky to have the talented and vivacious Laura Hodos join us at Penobscot Theatre. Laura is a bit of a shutter-bug, and we just thought you might like to see some of what she captured during her time with us here…….enjoy! (All photos and tags courtesy of Laura Hodos).

A great joy of my time at Acadia Rep was playing Charlotte in Charlotte’s Web, and getting to go to the Blue Hill Fair at the time. And I was pumped that the Fair would be while I was in town!

Our drummer, Tom Libby and I, decided to go off on adventures once a week! So we headed out to the Penobscot Narrows Observatory and Ft. Knox!

Back to the Bear for another fun-filled interview—and even better, this time, one of the guys had been a student of Julie’s, Christopher Rudolph! Small worlds collide!

Colin invited me to go with him to Dirigo Pines, and we had a great time singing and telling stories!

And let’s just face it: Food on a stick is just more fun!

I. Love. Reny’s!

Oh, such joy! Whoopie pies from the Friars’ Bakehouse! These are the best I’ve ever had!

Even the lobsters don’t want me to leave! He’s coming right at me!

The only good part about leaving Maine—my view on the flight from JFK to Orlando. Plenty of room for the tissues from crying.

I had the best time ever, and I can’t thank you all enough for welcoming me as a part of the PTC family! Until next time…!
Laura 🙂

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!  We will miss Laura and wish her all the best on her upcoming journeys! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAND……………..we would like to introduce our next visiting artist!  Stacey Scotte will be joining us all the way from Los Angeles, California to play the title character in our upcoming production of Becky’s New Car.  Ms. Scotte brings a wealth of experience from her background in television, film, and theater.  We can’t wait to show her around; so if you see her in downtown Bangor – say hello!
