Happy Summer!

We wanted to reach out with a quick catch up before we lose you to suntans, barbecues, trashy books and trendy sunglasses.

Our upcoming production of SWEAT is in the news! John Timpane from the Philadelphia Inquirer says, “For PTC, Sweat is a bold move: It’s the first fully self-produced play there since artistic director Paige Price came aboard...The cast, directed by Justin Emeka, is a local all-star team.” Read more here.

Road trip! Our Sweat cast and director, designers and PTC supporters Linda and David Glickstein took a trip to Reading, the town that is at the heart of the story of Sweat, and we started at the Berks History Center. Thanks, Rick Polityka for the private tour!

After a delish lunch from Latin American Chef Hector Ruiz at Sofrito’s Gastro Pub, we gathered at GoggleWorks, a former goggle manufacturing facility (think aviator and early swim goggles), now housing an amazing arts center. GoggleWorks offered a sunny studio for our photo shoot. We ended the day at Mike’s Tavern, the bar upon which the play is loosely based, for drinks, darts and inspiration for PTC’s production with “Mike” (aka owner Pete Cammarano) and locals who graciously shared their personal histories in Reading.

The Reading Eagle embedded with us for the photo shoot and visit to Mike's – check out their story.

We’ve also been having gigantic fun at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, starting with Comcast NBCUniversal’s recent spectacular early screening of Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. We’ve now installed a permanent movie projector with surround sound, and are eager to show it off to all of you as soon as possible. We’ll be able to offer even more kinds of events, and our ability to bring a new high tech element to our theatrical productions has our designers very excited.

Well, that’s it. Have a wonderful summer, we hope you’ll think of us (because we’ll be thinking of YOU). And if we’re honest, we really can’t wait for summer to END, so we can throw open our doors and make theatre again.

Thanks for your support and good wishes, and as always, we love hearing from you.
