Penobscot Welders Go To The Theatre

August 10th, 2012

8/6/12  Fourteen welders from the Penobscot Job Corps Academy (PJCA)  passed their theatrical debut  at the Penobscot Theatre (PT) in Bangor this past Monday. In 73 minutes over 100 old theatre seats were disassembled and brought down from the balcony to an outside staging area to be recycled. The PT is reorganizing their storage areas and reached out to the PJCA for assistance. The Welding shop , under the leadership of welding instructor Mike Collins, jumped at the opportunity to lend a hand. PT Board member Mary Budd stated  “The theatre’s leadership team was blown away by the work of the Penobscot Job Corps on Monday. Magnus (Marketing Coordinator) and I found the students to be without exception efficient, diligent, and respectful—a real tribute to  the quality of the  program.” The students were served pizza and soda for lunch and will be attending  a show at the PT this fall.
