The recent musical selections have made it clear that PBTS has an exceptional stable of talented performers! Most theater lovers have seen "Little Shop" and "Dreamcoat," but they were sharp and fresh this season....fun!

I encourage everyone to support this local community theatre that provides great live performances in an intimate setting. Convenient to pre-theatre restaurants, the venue offers a terrific experience for all ages and interests. Recents shows such as Memphis and Eurydice knocked the socks off!
