The remainder of the roles are for adults and persons of any age/identity are welcome to audition.

‘The Secret Garden’ is the classic tale of family, friendship, and healing. Recently orphaned Mary Lennox has relocated to England to live with her widowed uncle, Andrew Craven, at his estate, Misselthwaite Manor. Mary is spoiled, grumpy and displeased with this new life. Master Craven is rarely at home and leaves Mary under the supervision of cold and strict housekeeper, Mrs. Medlock. After discovering a hidden garden, Mary finds something to occupy her time at the estate. She begins the hard work of bringing the secret garden back to life. Along the way she finds so much more than robins and roses; she finds hope, happiness, friendship and family.

About Us

Ten Bucks Theatre Co., INC. was conceived around a dining room table on a June night in 2000. As friends and colleagues we met to discuss the possibility of charting our own artistic futures, rather than simply sitting by the phone waiting for others to create opportunities for us. What we discovered was that we all had the same idea, to form and run our own theatre company and run it in a way that was satisfying to us as performers. We wanted to create exciting theatrical experiences accessible to our audiences as well as showcase extremely talented local artists.

We are the Bangor area’s only acting ensemble. All voices are equal and each of us contributes to the artistic and business workings of the company. Our jobs include selecting a season, directing, acting, costume design, lighting, set design and publicity. Among our members there is well over 100 years of theatrical experience.

Why Ten Bucks Theatre, Co? Simple! The name reflects the fact that we offer great theatre at a great price.

Our Mission

Ten Bucks Theatre is an ensemble company dedicated to producing consistently high quality, affordable performances, nurturing the creative growth of the artists, and entertaining the widest possible audience.
