PCT is now accepting subscription orders for the 2015-2016 season. Subscriptions for the Main Stage series of 5 shows are still only $70 each. Not only will you save money over the single ticket pricing, you will be a member of our community theatre, and will be listed in the show programs as a subscriber.
Current Members who renew for the same seats on the same night are guaranteed the same seating as last year as long as we receive your order by June 30th.
We'll start processing season orders on June 1st. Online sales for new subscriber orders for the 2015-16 Season will open on July 1.
When purchasing your subscription, please consider a donation to Peninsula Community Theatre.
New This Year - In past seasons, PCT included donations in the ticket packages. This year you can decide how much you wish to donate to PCT.
All donations help finance the cost of our productions, enable capital improvement, pay the mortgage, and replace tools and equipment. Please consider making a generous donation to keep local theatre alive.
Your donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated by our community of volunteers and patrons alike.
Our main donation request continues to be with your annual subscription, but donations will be accepted throughout the year. All donors will be listed in the playbills according to their donation level at the time it goes to press. Even if you're not a member of the theatre with a season subscription, we'd like to recognize your important contribution to our community.
In recognition of significant donations, the donor levels listed below will be used in this season's programs. These donations are for donations beyond standard ticket or subscription fees during the 2015-2016 season starting June 1st.

Do you and your family love the theatre? Have you been excited or moved by a PCT production, or helped move the audience by being on stage here yourself? For 20 years, PCT has been “making a mark” in Newport News and in the lives of thousands of people on the Peninsula. Now you can help us continue this tradition by making your mark at the Village Theatre!
Do you have a favorite seat in the Village? Now you can place your name on it! Your gift of $150 allows you to place an engraved plaque on the seat of your choice or any seat in the theater. It may be engraved with your name, in memoriam, or wording of your choice on a seat in the Village Theatre, home of the Peninsula Community Theatre; or you may purchase two seats for $250. The plaque can bear either your name, your business name, a memory of your favorite PCT show, or the name of a loved one who enjoys or enjoyed this historic theater. Plaques can also be dedicated anonymously. One plaque is available per seat, so we ask that you act today. Plaques are limited to 4 lines, with 30 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation.
Please note that seats will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Seat sponsors must still purchase tickets to all events at the theatre, and they are not guaranteed seating in the chairs bearing their name.
If you would prefer to donate to the Annual Fund instead in the amount of your choice, your gift is always welcome. There is an area on the form to indicate your contribution. We thank you for your continued support of Peninsula Community Theatre, and for helping us provide quality theatre to the Peninsula.
John Wilt, President
