Our 47th Season

We could not be more thrilled to introduce PST's 47th season -- a series of four challenging, engaging, and entertaining plays.

This summer’s season explores the theme of “the Other.” Each show in our season peers into the other side of a story or character, bringing us to new depths of understanding of these multifaceted tales and beings. Theater allows us to see what people might not reveal instinctively, giving us a new perspective on what was once familiar. Each show in our season provides a powerful take on noticing and appreciating the differences in us all. We are so looking forward to you joining us!


  • ASSASSINS with Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by John Weidman, Directed by Tatiana Pandiani

Assassins is an explosive tale of the American Dream gone awry. A multiple Tony Award-winning musical, Assassins combines Sondheim’s brilliant lyricism and rich music in a revue-style tale addressing our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means taken to obtain it. Clever, original, dark, and surprisingly funny, Assassins is perhaps Sondheim’s most controversial musical.

Dates: June 16-18 & 23-25 at 8pm; June 18-19 & 25-26 at 2pm


After a playground fight erupts between their two young sons, two sets of parents are brought together in a meeting to resolve the matter. While they play nice at first, they soon devolve into outlandish, bickering children themselves. The 2009 Tony Award-Winner for Best Play, Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage is an energetic and hilarious triumph, showing us what is underneath the polite facade of these upper class adults.

Dates: June 30-July 2 & July 7-9 at 8pm; July 2-3 & July 9-10 at 2pm


Praised as Tom Stoppard’s modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a wonderfully inventive behind the scenes look into Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Told through the worm’s-eye view of the once minor characters Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, Stoppard’s play takes us to a place where reality and illusion intermix. Join the protagonists on an absurdist tale of musings and misadventures as they discover their inevitable fate.

Dates: July 14-16, 21-23, & 28-30 at 8pm; July 16-17, 23-24, & 30-31 at 2pm


Winner of multiple Obie Awards, Sam Shepard’s dramedy unfolds in a motel room in the Mojave Desert in which we find the continuously bickering former lovers May and Eddie. There, they unravel their tangled relationship, almost tearing each other apart. A dark exploration into love and family, Fool for Love shows us how our pasts surely come back to haunt us.

Dates: August 4-6 & 11-13 at 8pm; August 6-7 & 13-14 at 2pm


In addition to our four main stage shows, PST also will present its annual Children's Show. Stay tuned for more information on our children's programming!
