Life Long Learning at PTC
At Penobscot Theatre, we believe one of the keystones of our organization is education. We are committed to fostering the imaginations and skill sets of people from the age of 1 to 100. Creating a center for the community to exercise collaboration and facilitate exploration of the world around us through artistic endeavors is of the utmost importance to us. The Education and Outreach Department has a variety of programming available to enrich and empower every individual. From student matinees to outreach touring, from classes for four year olds to internships for college students, PTC has something for everyone. We are excited to be in the planning stages of greatly increasing our programming as well, so check back often for updates about new opportunities. We welcome you to the theater, and hope you find an artistic home with us!
