Welcome to the first of PTE’s community updates. We have created this update to offer transparency into the workings of our company and to share insights into plans, actions, and thoughts that are driving the work we do.
While producing theatre is an important part of what we do as a company, it is only a part of what we do. The morals, ethics, philosophy, politics, and passion that drive us may not be clearly evidenced in our programming alone. These updates aim to give a fuller picture of PTE.
Our goal is to release two updates each season on our website: one in the fall as the season is beginning and another in the spring as the season closes. This will allow our community (of artists and audiences) to know some of our priorities at the beginning of a season, and then to see how those priorities have grown, evolved, been met or changed by the end of the season.
The content of this first update very much reflects the focus and priorities of PTE at this moment, particularly how we are navigating the beginning of the season during the pandemic and also our anti-racism work (including meeting commitments made in our recent statement).
At the end of each update, we will include information on how to reach our Artistic Director, our General Manager/Managing Director, and our board of directors.
