Artists Circle

The artists circle: where great theatre and great friends meet

Philadelphia Theatre Company is one of the region’s most dynamic cultural organizations. Offering both imaginative and entertaining contemporary plays and musicals that span the breadth of the American experience, PTC ignites the intellect and touches the soul.  Here, nationally recognized artists collaborate with the region’s most accomplished writers, actors, designers and musicians to achieve breathtaking  results. Beyond what happens on stage, PTC artists actively engage theatre goers in going “behind the scenes” of the creative process. Each year, PTC’s award-winning Drama Contact education program brings the power of theater to thousands of Philadelphia public school students.

As a non-profit theatre PTC can count on ticket sales to cover only about half  the cost of our programs.  We rely on individuals like you who care about the quality of the arts in our region to make possible PTC’s artistic, education, and outreach programs. Artists Circle members help defray these operating costs, and are, therefore, vital to PTC’s growth and future.
