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.  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.

As a non-profit theatre, PTC can count on ticket sales to cover only about one third of 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 and outreach programs. Artists Circle members are vital to PTC’s growth and future, providing not only support, but also a community of shared values and interests.  Artists Circle members participate more deeply in the life of the organization.
