For over 40 years, Bangor’s Penobscot Theatre Company has produced hundreds of plays and created a magical world of joy and wonder for kids (of all ages) through their innovative educational and summer programs. Wednesday On Main brings you area improv pros Dennis Price & Amy Roeder, who have created a two person, improv tutorial evening and show. They’ll call kids up as volunteers throughout the show, and ask them to join at the end for a round of “Freeze” – as family friendly as you can be!! Marcia Gallagher music directs this show that is based on suggestions from the audience, just like Whose Line Is It Anyway! Who knows, you might even get to be part of the act! Don’t miss this one of a kind show!
Dennis Price, founder of Capital City Improv, studied and performed improvisation in Chicago with The Second City and IO Theater(formerly ImprovOlympic).

He worked with the Theater at Monmouth for 12 years, and he was also seen at the Penobscot Theater in Bangor and The Public Theater in Lewiston. During the summer, he performs with ImprovAcadia in Bar Harbor. Currently, Dennis teaches Theatre at Winthrop High School and also directs the drama program. He lives in Readfield with his beautiful wife Dania, and Charlotte, the wonder poodle.
