BANGOR — Penobscot Theatre Company’s Dramatic Academy is getting ready for its first youth production of the summer, “Hairspray.”
Set in Baltimore in the late 1960s, the hit Broadway musical follows big-haired and big-hearted Tracy Turnblad, a spunky teenager who realizes her dream of dancing on a popular television program, then launches a campaign to integrate the show.
“As a musical theatre junkie, I am thrilled to be producing Hairspray,” said Christie Robinson, who will direct the play, along with Ben Layman, assisted by Alek Sayers.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 18-19, and 2 p.m. Sunday, July 20, at the Bangor Opera House.
Tickets may be purchased online at penobscottheatre.org or by calling the box office at 942-3333. Adult tickets are $12, $8 children.
SEARSPORT — An artist’s reception, featuring “Eric Hopkins: Shells-Fish-Shellfish,” will be held 5-8 p.m. Friday, July 25, at the Douglas and Margaret Carver Memorial Art Gallery, 11 Church St., Penobsoct Marine Museum.
