BANGOR – There are few tasks more difficult for a performer to execute than holding a stage solo. To be up there under the lights all by yourself – it’s a staggering responsibility. It demands a combination of presence and willpower that requires massive effort to generate and even more effort to maintain. To do this for even a few minutes is an incredible and admirable feat.

Now imagine doing it for an entire show.

That’s what Brianne Beck is doing in “Tell Me on a Sunday,” the latest production from Penobscot Theatre Company. Directed and choreographed by Dominick Varney, this show – with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Don Black – is a one-woman tour de force, a story of ambition and disappointment, both personal and professional. The show runs through January 23 at the Bangor Opera House.

This one-act show is a non-stop musical experience, with Beck vocally carrying the story forward with the help of a three-piece band (one that includes musical director David Madore on keyboards). It’s a story both sweet and sad, one told beautifully through song.

Warning: May be habit-forming

Winterport Open Stage presents Nunsense'

WINTERPORT They might have heavenly voices, but they're here to raise a little hell.

Winterport Open Stage is presenting their production of the musical 'Nunsense' with book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin at the Wagner Middle School in Winterport. The production runs through April 28. Tickets are $10 ($8 for students and seniors).

The Little Sisters of Hoboken are in a bit of a bind. Their cook (Sister Julia, Child of God) has accidentally poisoned the majority of the convent's residents with a tainted fish stew. Only 19 sisters remain they survived due to being off playing Bingo. A handful of the survivors have thus taken it upon themselves to put on a show in an effort to raise funds to pay for the burials of their fallen sisters.

A killer show

Winterport Open Stage presents murderous comedy

WINTERPORT Marriage can be murder. And as presented by one local theater company, said murder can be very, very funny.

Winterport Open Stage is presenting 'The Smell of the Kill,' a play by Michele Lowe and directed by Dominick Varney, through April 29 at the Wagner Middle School in Winterport.

Nicky (Brianne Beck), Debra (Jenny Hart) and Molly (Christie Robinson) are three women whose relationships with one another are built almost entirely around the fact that their respective husbands have been friends since college. The men meet up monthly for cards, cigars and dining room golf (no really) while their wives retire quietly to the kitchen for chat, cards and Chardonnay.
