Pomperaug Theatre Co.
Welcome to the 2013-14 PTC season!
Our fall Black Box production of Ken Ludwig's Midsummer/Jersey was a smash hit, with 5 of the 6 performances completely sold out.
Next, we will be rehearsing Romulus Linney's one act comedy, Goodbye, Howard, for the annual CDA Festival in March (to be hosted by our friends at E. O. Smith H. S. in Storrs, CT).
And this spring (first weekend in May) our mainstage will be graced with another hilarious comedy, Don Zolidis's The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza! Come see this delightful show, in which two high school students attempt to produce ALL of Greek mythology in one evening.
PTC's 2012-13 season, including the daring Black Box Production of Moliere's comedy about marriage and parenting, The Learned Ladies, and the thoroughly glamorous production of the musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was a smash success.

Pomperaug Theater Company is the production arm for the Pomperaug High School educational theatre program. Its purpose is to afford opportunities for the Region 15 students in grades 9-12 to engage in a real-world work experience in theatre. Our productions are designed to imitate the work of theatre professionals under the guidance of the Artistic Director, Mr. Paul E. Doniger.
PTC is designed to accomplish a few goals. Most of these goals correspond to both the State of Connecticut Framework and the NAEP Framework for Theatre Arts Education. One goal not clearly stated in these standards is the creation of exciting theatre. Our students work to learn and use the skills of theatre professionals both on and back stage. In the theatre program, students develop more universal skills, such as problem solving, creative thinking, and critical thinking. Students also develop a solid work ethic and understand the need to meet deadlines through their work in the Pomperaug Theatre Company.
