A Message from our Producing Artistic Director

Welcome to Vol. 1 of PTC's newsletter, Plays and Players! We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves too much, but so much is happening here. We wanted to share the highlights now that you’ve had a full week to enjoy the Super Bowl win!

Our non-stop fall featured no less than nine shows in the theatre. Emily Zeck joined the company as our new Managing Director, and we celebrated all that is wonderful about our community at the Barrymore Awards

The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey (May 2017) made the Philadelphia Inquirer 2017 Best of Philly Theatre list, and our Board Chair David L. Cohen helped us grow our support by adding seven dynamic new board leaders.

We are also participating in the inaugural Philly Theatre Week by presenting 3 events - Musical Thrones: A Parody of Ice and Fire, which was a huge hit last weekend, the upcoming The Summer Club: A Big Band Valentine’s Day and a fun dive into improv comedy hosted in our space by Tongue and Groove Theater.

What’s next? In time for spring, we have the beautiful play Small Mouth Sounds by Bess Wohl, March 13th - April 1st, directed by Obie-winning, and Tony Award-nominated Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812). If you’ve wondered what it would be like to leave your cell phone and busy life behind for a peaceful retreat in the woods you’ll want to join us for Small Mouth Sounds.  

Best for last? Our 2018-19 subscription season will be announced from our stage on February 20th! We are SO EXCITED! Set your Google alerts, watch your inbox and your mailbox, or mark your calendar to visit us here on the 20th.

Oh! One more thing - have FOMO? (Fear Of Missing Out)

Call 215.985.0420 and be sure we have your current or preferred contact details.  

As always, I want to hear your comments and questions, so I invite you to reach out at or call me at 215-985-1400 x107.


March 13 - April 1

Written by Drama Desk Award-winner Bess Wohl and directed by Obie Award-winner Rachel Chavkin, Small Mouth Sounds is a cleverly conceived and sharp observation of the pursuit of wellness and the achingly human, and often frustrating, need to connect.   

February 20
