An event for Penobscot Theatre, Beer and Brats, A Celebration of Hedwig And The Angry Inch

  As a lover of the arts, I am so thankful and proud on my local professional theatre, Penobscot Theatre Company.  This year they ask me to help design and plan some events to celebrate shows that will be playing.  The next big event is the rock opera, Hedwig And The Angry Inch. The play is about  a transexual punk rock girl from East Berlin.  She tours the US with her rock band as she tells her life story and follows the ex-boyfriend/bandmate who stole her songs.  

To Celebrate the coming of this play Scott Rc Levy, the producing artistic director of the Penobscot Theatre, wanted a Beer and Brats party.... HILARIOUS!!!  

After throwing around design concepts for a couple of weeks we decided on a traditional Oktoberfest beer and brats celebration.  Therefore I am going for real German Festival feel.  Tables will have black, yellow and, red linens, just like the German flags.  The back wall will be covered with butcher paper and transformed into the Berlin wall, with graffiti and uplighting.  The ceiling will be draped with triangular flags in German colors along with shields of German clans.  I am also hanging large bulb lights to give the festival street look.  Of course the staff will be wearing tradition lederhosen, and Maine Photo Booth will be bringing a photo booth for guest to use and remember the great event.  

For cuisine, we are doing a brat table, with all the fixings, beer and of course, soft pretzels.  We will make each station have a festival look, with flags and decor.   The Party will be taking place right after the Saturday show.  For show times and tickets please go to or call 207.942.3333.   It should be a great event.   Grab your stein and meet me there!!
