Peninsula Community Theatre is excited to offer Virginia Rep’s free family production of Santa’s Enchanted Workshop. PCT has covered the cost so we may offer this to you and your family during the holiday season. We hope this family fun event brings your family some holiday cheer. PCT wishes the best to you and your family during this holiday season and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Stanley and his baby sister, SuSu, don’t know whether or not to believe in Santa Claus, so they set out for the North Pole. Trapped in a blizzard, they wind up in a dilapidated gas station run by a mysterious old man named Nick. Could this be Santa’s Enchanted Workshop? Imagination is the key in this joyous holiday musical, which features a singing robot, a dancing rag doll and one of the silliest villains you’ll ever see!

Performed by Virginia Rep artists.

2020 - 21 Season Update

Changes to our streaming show lineup

Our March 2021 show has changed. We will be presenting The Children instead of our previously planned show, Breakfast with Les and Bess. 

The Children - by Lucy Kirkwood

Two retired nuclear scientists reside in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles. Together they are going to live forever on yogurt and yoga, until an old friend arrives with a frightening request.
Presented by Special Arrangement with Dramatist Play Services, New York, NY

2020 - 21 Season 

PCT's  streaming show lineup

PCT is committed to the safety of our volunteers, our audience, and our community. Shows with in-house audiences or large casts cannot be safely produced during the covid-19 pandemic. We're producing small cast shows with online streaming, participating in play reading events online, and looking for other opportunities to celebrate theatre in our community. See our lineup of shows this season.
This is new territory for all of us, and we appreciate not only donations, but also your feedback on what we're doing, and ideas for what we can do. 
We hope that our members stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to the return of live, in-person theatre when it's a safe activity for all of us.

News from PCT

Peninsula Community Theatre is bringing the theatre to your home. Since we can't yet safely assemble an audience in our auditorium, we're preparing shows that can be performed safely and streamed to you at home. We're opening with Indoor/Outdoor in October, and planning more shows over the coming months.

How much does it cost? It's free! But we do appreciate donations. The production costs of our shows and continuing expense of our theatre still need loyal community members to donate. There is no suggested donation, but we're counting on your continued generosity.

We're excited to bring you theatrical productions again, and we're looking forward to exploring this new media. We really miss live in-person theatre, and we'll get back to it as soon as we can safely do so.

Next Season Announcement

PCT proudly announces it's 2020 - 21 Season!

Our 2020 season is full of music, comedy, drama, and long titles. Whether you're part of our productions, or a member of the audience, we hop you enjoy our upcoming season.Dates and Details here. Subscriptions will open in mid-May. 


A young female singing trio from Chicago get their big break at an amateur competition and begin singing backup vocals. Troubles arrive when their agent makes Deena and not Effie, the star of what will become known as "The Dreams." Come hear dazzling music!


On the night of a preview of a new play, Jitters takes the audience into the world of the theatre – larger-than-life personalities, easily bruised egos, contradictory interpretations of role and script – complicated by faulty props, close quarters, lost lines, and bad reviews, and all magnified by the opening night “jitters” of cast, crew, writer, and director.

The Harmony Baptist Church Ladies Auxiliary Christmas Jubilee

Pastor Bobby has come to Harmony just in time for the 25th Annual Harmony Baptist Church Christmas Jubilee. As the town readies for the celebration, things start to fall apart. No one can decide who will play the angel in the pageant, the star on the Christmas tree won't light up, the fruitcake bake-off is a disaster, and, worst of all, the baby Jesus is missing. But as the town fights to hold on to their traditions, they learn that maybe "progress" isn't a dirty word.


An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Vanya and his stepsister Sonia have lived their entire lives in their family's farmhouse. While they stayed home to take care of their ailing parents, their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress and movie star, leaving Vanya and Sonia to feel trapped and regretful. Their soothsayer/cleaning woman Cassandra keeps warning them about terrible things in the future, which include a sudden visit from Masha and her twenty-something boy toy Spike.

Next Season Announcement

PCT proudly announces it's 2019-2020 Season!

PCT has selected a fun, interesting, thoughtful, and hilarious set of plays and musicals for the 2019-1020 season. We look forward to producing these shows using our local talent designing, acting onstage, making the magic real behind the scenes for our community audience. Dates and Details here. Subscriptions will open in mid-May. 

Mama Mia

The story-telling magic of these timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you'll never forget!

Taking Leave

In the middle of the night, Eliot Pryne, professor of English Literature—specialty Shakespeare—is packing what he thinks is a suitcase and leaving what he thinks is a hotel. In the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, he is "taking leave" of the real world and imagining a new one, but the transition is painful.  The visitation of Eliot's three daughters forms the central event of this oddly comic, yet fully sympathetic play. Filled with the often farcical behavior that goes along with this disease, and decorated with "good talk" from the literate professor and his daughters, this play had packed houses at the Denver Center laughing, weeping and finally standing and cheering.

The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge

A year after his miraculous transformation, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old ways and is suing Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder and the intentional infliction of emotional distress, or is he? Is the one-night-a-year ghost trip working? Did Scrooge really let the spirit of Christmas into his heart? A heartwarming, yet unexpected, answer awaits!

Rock of Ages

It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace, and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, the unknown aspiring rock star Drew, and fresh-off-the-bus Sherri long to take the stage as the next big thing. But trouble finds the rock and roll fairy-tale as real estate developers arrive. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before it's too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and more hold the answer.


In this unabashedly sentimental comedy, a cat named Samantha has just started living with a guy named Shuman who she believes is her true love. At first everything seems to be going great. Samantha can't get enough of Shuman, and he can't get enough of her. But soon Samantha realizes that Shuman doesn't always seem to understand her. Join Samantha on her journey of discovery, both physical and emotional, that leads her to find what having a home and being loved really mean to her. INDOOR/OUTDOOR is an allegory about the difficulties and joys of all manner of relationships.
