Until very recently, Bangor Community Theatre, established in 1951, had been homeless, with nowhere to perform. Seeking a stage to continue the tradition of community theater in the greater Bangor area, BCT approached the Bangor Grangers to rent their stage for their production of 'Who's On First, A Nightmare Comedy' last October. The Bangor Grangers welcomed BCT with open arms and the relationship has flourished. Several of BCT's board members have since joined the Grange and the organizations are now teaming up to serve many different areas in our community.
