BANGOR – There’s no business like show business. And when you have a show about show business? Well – the show must go on. And on. And on…

Bangor Community Theatre is presenting “Moon Over Buffalo,” a comedy by Ken Ludwig, on their home stage at the Bangor Grange Hall. The show – directed by Irene Dennis – runs through Nov. 24.

It’s the story of two aging actors, touring the hinterlands with a pair of classic stage plays in the 1950s. However, when an unexpected opportunity presents the possibility of a return to glory, the pair will do whatever it takes to make it happen – no matter what.

Family tries – ‘I Remember Mama’

BANGOR – A classic story about family life in the early 20th century is playing out on stage here in Bangor.

Bangor Community Theatre is presenting John van Druten’s “I Remember Mama” at the Bangor Grange Hall. Directed by Irene Dennis, the production runs through May 12.

Adapted from the book “Mama’s Bank Account” by Kathryn Forbes, it’s the story of the Hanson family living in San Francisco in the year 1910. Viewed through the eyes of one of the younger Hansons – one of the family’s first generation of native Americans – it’s a tale of the tight embrace of family ties, of what it means to have and to want, of the American Dream.

BCT keeps things hopping with ‘Harvey’

BANGOR – Local audiences can expect a hopping good time courtesy of Bangor Community Theatre.

BCT is presenting their production of Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic 1944 comedy “Harvey” at Bangor Grange Hall #372. The show – directed by Irene Dennis – runs through Nov. 4.

It’s the story of a man and his best friend - a friend who just happens to be a six-foot tall rabbit that only he can see. Despite that – or perhaps because of it – he is one of the most amiable, friendly fellows you could ever hope to meet. However, there are those around him who want to relieve him of his friend … and not all of them have his best interests at heart.

“Harvey” is a story about the difference between being grounded in reality and having your head in the clouds … and about whether it really matters as long as you manage to be a good person. If your fantasy isn’t hurting anyone, then what’s the harm? Not to mention – who’s to say what’s real, anyway?

Bangor Community Theatre's latest a sweet, breezy comedy

Published in Happenings

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.

The frantic farce of The Foreigner'

UMaine summer theatre kicks off third season

ORONO The University of Maine Summer Music Theatre Festival is back with their 2012 season.

This season debuts with 'The Foreigner' by Larry Shue. The production is actually a collaboration between UMSMTF and Bangor Community Theatre. Performances are at the Cyrus Pavilion Theatre on the University of Maine campus and run through June 17.

Charlie Baker is a bit of a dull guy nice, but dull. Charlie's friend Froggy LeSueur is a British explosives expert who occasionally comes to the U.S. to run training sessions. Froggy brings Charlie along with him on one of these jaunts, putting him up in a rural fishing lodge in Georgia.

However, Froggy must tend to his duties and leave Charlie alone at the lodge, which serve only to exacerbate Charlie's feelings of shyness. In an attempt to help his friend, Froggy tells Betty, the lodge owner, that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and neither speaks nor understands English.
