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). Since coming to Maine in
1998, Dennis has worked as an actor, performer, improviser, teacher, and director. 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.
Amy Roeder is the Director of Education at Penobscot Theatre. Amy has been a professional
improvisor and improv teacher for 19 years, working for companies such as Improv Acadia in
Bar Harbor, Capital City Improv (Augusta), Improv Asylum (Boston) and Chicago’s famed
Second City among others. In addition to teaching improv for performance, Amy has brought
improv skills training to several companies including Halyard Health Care, Starcom MediaVest,
the US District Court and Archer Gray Consulting. Amy has been an invited instructor to improv
festivals all over the world (or at least the western hemisphere, though she’s working on that).
