August Covid Measures

Safety and convenience for The 39 Steps, August 6 - 22, 2021

PCT is looking forward to having a live audience for The 39 Steps. We're taking these measures to address any social distancing or safety concerns.

  • MASK SUGGESTIONS To provide an additional measure of safety, we encourage all audience members regardless of vaccination status, to wear facial coverings during the show.
  • We have set aside groups of seats for potential relocation should you feel the need.
  • We are limiting our ticket sales to 65% of the theater seating capacity.
  • In addition, we will be practicing enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures in the building. We have hand sanitizer available for everyone, and we will be cleaning common surfaces regularly.

We hope you find PCT a welcoming and safe venue with these measures in place.

The 39 Steps

PCT returns to Live Shows! August 6 - 22, 2021

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 30 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

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.

Donate to PCT

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.
