Some Theatre Company, a local theater group noted for its productions of edgy and contemporary plays and musicals, said Tuesday that it is now the second Bangor-area theater company to move into the Bangor Mall.
Some Theatre will join Ten Bucks Theatre Company as the mall’s other performing arts-based tenant. Its board has already signed a lease on the new space, located in the former location of Justice Clothing, between Lane Bryant and Furniture, Mattress and More.
Elaine Bard, executive producing artistic director for Some Theatre, said that though her company long knew it would eventually need to find its own dedicated home, the process of securing a mall space happened quickly.
“We only started the process about three weeks ago,” Bard said. “I think, for us, it really came down to us reaching the limits of what we could do in the space we were in. We had absolutely no room to grow. We’d have three days, sometimes, to build and paint a set and hang all the lights, which is just no time at all. Now, we’ll have all the time in the world.”
