PCT returns to Live Shows! August 6 - 22, 2021
PCT is excited to welcome back audiences to see The 39 Steps in August!
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good ole-fashioned romance!
Presented by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals, New York, NY
Getting ready to return to live shows!
Live Theatre! PCT is preparing to open its doors to a live audience with the first show of the 2021-22 season in August! We're starting our membership drive in June, selling subscription seats, and letting existing members renew their subscriptions from the 2019-20 season.
PCT will reserve sections of the auditorium for social distancing. If you feel you'd like to get a little more room from other audience members, just ask an usher to reseat you to the seats we've reserved for distancing.
We're prepared to conduct extra cleaning and santizing of common areas, and will determine if seating limits or any other measures are needed in advance of each show in accordance with the latest recomendations and government rules. Vaccinations are encouraged but not required for theatre attendance as a means to reduce risk to yourself and our community.
We're going to adapt these preparation for each show throughout the season, to ensure a safe and welcoming theatre environment.
A fun season, because we need it!
Our selection committee has given us what we need right now. Five fun shows to let you laugh along with your neighbors. They did, however choose some of the longest titles in the catalog!
See the full descriptions on our Season Page! Come out to the theatre when you're ready! We're here!
News from PCT
During the pandemic, when we couldn't have a live audience, PCT moved to online productions. PCT produced a full season of streaming content during the 2020-21 season. We had a steep learning curve, and moved from informal reader's theatre productions to fully staged productions, to productions shot at home and edited together.
One thing we learned quickly is that technical quality matters. Thanks to a kind donation of professional-grade video cameras from Canon Virginia, Inc, we were able to shoot our on-stage content with high quality. This improved our streaming shows immensely.
As we return to live theatre, we hope to produce shorts for on-line distribution to enrich our theatre community.
During these trying times
PCT sold no tickets during the 2020-21 season, but many members of our community donated to the theatre through ticket turn-in on cancelled shows, and donations for our streaming shows.
We appreciate your donations made during this trying time. As we slowly return to normal, we're still highly dependent on donations from our community. Our membership drive is a great chance to donate to PCT, and other donations are also welcome.
If you're in a position to donate, we hope that you do. We've opened a COVID-19 appeal for any "extra" donation you'd like to make to help PCT get through this rough time. And a PCT Operations appeal which is the "normal" donation that we process each year.

Local Advertising with PCT's community is a great way to gain positive exposure. Our digital programs this year will include your ads as normal, but we're also adding advertisers to this website, so customers can find our sponsors any time!
Renew your subscription or start a new one! Our mail-in subscription form is now available, and mailers are on their way. Our Annual Membership Drive is underway!
