Bernard Hope

  • Bernard joined Ten Bucks Theatre ensemble in 2008. Since then, he has fulfilled the vitally important ceremonial role of token ‘Brit’. He immigrated to the USA in 2005 and lives in Ellsworth, Maine.
  • “When the opportunity arose to join Ten Bucks; I jumped at the chance. I got involved in aspects of delivering a quality theatre experience that normally wouldn’t have been open to me. The chance to be involved in choosing productions, performing, securing props and costuming, budgeting and production planning have all helped me develop as a theatre professional. Meeting new people and building new friendships through the performing arts really helped me acclimatize to living in the USA.”
  • In addition to being an ensemble member, he also appears regularly at Penobscot Theatre Company (Bangor, ME), Acadia Repertory Theatre (Somesville, ME) and the Grand Theatre (Ellsworth, ME).
