Sponsorship Opportunities at Penobscot Theatre Company 

The success and longevity of our theatre depends upon the generous support of so many in our incredible Bangor community. We welcome and are grateful for all levels of support. The list below provides a summary of opportunities for businesses and individuals as well as the marketing and other perks that accompany your sponsorship.

Corporate Sponsorships

Building a Relationship between the Business of Theatre Arts and Business 
The Bangor Opera House is the last remaining theater in what used to be a constellation of Opera Houses in downtown Bangor. The Bangor Opera House which is the home of The Penobscot Theatre Company is still a functioning building with a thriving company. The other theaters have been lost to fire or urban renewal. We stand at the top of Main Street firmly rooted in our community. To honor those that came before, we’ve renamed our sponsorship levels after three of the venerable theaters -The Gaiety (1855-1911), The Bijou (1912-1973) and The Park (1914-1973).

This year we will see you at the theatre! We hope we’ll have your support!

Thank you to our season sponsors!

Bangor is a wonderful place to live. Why? Partly because of the natural beauty of our mountains, streams, the ocean and the abundance of green spaces and partly because of the supportive community that makes up the Queen City.

Each season Penobscot Theatre Company is supported by our patrons, local businesses that advertise in our program, foundations and non-profits and corporate sponsors.

We’re so grateful to our fellow businesses who continue to support live theatre. Many of the sponsors below have supported Penobscot Theatre Company for years and some just came onboard this year.
