Scott R.C. Levy announced today that he will step down as Producing Artistic Director of Penobscot Theatre Company in June. Levy, whose background includes work as a director, actor and producer, is leaving to become the Producing Artistic Director of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center Theatre Company. This marks Levy’s sixth season at Penobscot Theatre.
“We are sorry to see Scott go, but we feel fortunate to have had his talent, passion, and vision for the past six years,” said Board President Bob Kelly. “He has been very active in the community and has worked tirelessly to make Penobscot Theatre a more prominent player in the region. Under his guidance, Penobscot Theatre has become an even greater part of the downtown Bangor community; playing a significant role in helping to shape the future economic and cultural development of the area. We wish him continued success as he takes the next steps in his career.”
“I will always treasure my tenure at Penobscot Theatre and the time my family and I have had in Maine,” said Scott R.C. Levy. “This new opportunity represents an exciting challenge and I am looking forward to the move out West and also the next four months of creating theatre here in Bangor.”
As a director, actor and/or producer, Levy has worked on, off and off-off Broadway, at the New York and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals and in over 60 cities across the United States and Canada. For his work at Penobscot Theatre, Levy has received the community revitalization award from Maine Preservation, the organizational impact award from the Bangor CVB, Fusion Bangor’s Horizon Award and named to MaineBiz’s NEXT list, as one of the top 10 people shaping the future of Maine’s economy.
