BANGOR — Penobscot Theatre Company invites the community to a complimentary sampling of its 2014-2015 season through its Scenes and Songs event at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, at 7 pm, at the Bangor Opera House. “We’ve been preparing for months for the upcoming season, and we’re excited to share what’s in store,” said Artistic Director Bari Newport. “Joining top-notch performers from across the region, we’ll have the amazing Laura Hodos in town, whom our audience will remember from ‘Always…Patsy Cline.’ She’ll give a classic country taste of our season opener, ‘The Honky Tonk Angels,’ followed by scenes and songs from the remaining shows, including our special holiday production of ‘The Wizard of Oz.”’
