STUDIO THEATRE OF BATH ANNOUNCES THEIR 2011-2012 SEASON

Following the vast success of the 2010-2011 season, the Studio Theatre of Bath has proudly selected four wildly entertaining and diverse plays for 2011-2012. “Weare excited and are confident that actors and audience members alike will share the enthusiasm,” boasts Bob Reed who is directing the first of the plays running October 14-16 and 21-23.

Lion In Winter offers delicious wit with a dash of treason when King Henry II of England springs his captive wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine from prison. Set in 1183, this royal family puts the fun in dysfunctional with dungeons, daggers, sibling rivalry and love-hate relationships.

Spend this holiday season watching The Greatest Christmas Pageant Ever directed by Wayne Otto. Not your conventional Christmas story, the “worst kids in the world,” six Herdman family siblings were infamous in their small town for lying, stealing, cussing at authority figures, and overall juvenile delinquency.

Reed & Reed’s Industry Leading Safety Record Earns National Recognition

Woolwich, ME – Reed & Reed’s outstanding safety record was celebrated today at the construction site of the new Veterans Memorial Bridge, with approximately 100 Reed & Reed employees, state officials, Maine’s Commissioner of Transportation and The Honorable Senator Susan Collins.
Reed & Reed, a leader in complex bridges and the region’s premier wind power contractor, was awarded Safety & Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) Certification. In this particular case, the Veterans Memorial Bridge project is one of two Construction Pilot SHARP sites in the country. The recognition is for the company’s exemplary safety record on the new Veterans’ Memorial Bridge which is currently under construction. The Veterans Memorial Bridge contract was awarded to Reed & Reed in a “best value” bid process by the Maine DOT at the end of 2009 and is considered one of the most important MDOT projects underway.
