Midcoast theater group rebrands through grant

Jan 11, 2021

Belfast — Midcoast Actors Studio has received a $5,000 Organizational Development grant from the Maine Arts Commission. “This grant will help our rebranding,” said Jason Bannister, artistic director. “After 10 years of being Midcoast Actors Studio, we’re changing our name to Midcoast Theater Company to better reflect our mission. We’ll be working with a graphic designer and consultant on our new logo, marketing and online presence, as well as street signs for our theater building.”

Midcoast Theater Company was founded in 2012 with a mission to bring people together to celebrate and explore what it means to be human. Thought-provoking theatre inspires collaboration and face-to-face connection in a digital age.
