Princeton Summer Theater is back for another interesting season


Princeton Summer Theater will return this summer with a full season of programming, including four main stage shows, a children’s show, and a series of Young Artists Workshops. This season’s main stage shows are exciting, challenging, and engaging: Metamorphoses, written by Mary Zimmerman; Pygmalion, written by George Bernard Shaw; The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard paired with the Actor's Nightmare by Christopher Durang; and Eurydice, written by Sarah Ruhl.  Our newly renovated space includes improved heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems, as well as a new automated winch system. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during last summer’s renovations, and we hope that you will join us this June for PST’s forty-sixth season.

This year’s season will focus on themes of adaptation and myth, exploring how stories are retold and passed down through time. It is a season that celebrates the magic and relevance of these myths for today. This season not only shows a timelessness to problems of love and relationships, but it also explores the power of these stories to move us to the depths and peaks of human emotion, to sorrow and to laughter.  We can't wait to share these stories with you!

Founded in 1968 by a group of Princeton University undergraduates, Princeton Summer Theater provides an opportunity for young actors, directors, designers, and theater administrators to become part of a unique artistic community. PST offers its company an unparalleled experience: a nurturing environment that inspires artistic ingenuity and prepares creative minds to enter the professional theater world. Through our Young Artist's Workshops and Children’s Show, partnerships with area businesses and residents, and plays that span a wide range of genre and subject matter, we bring together artists and community members in a 9-week long celebration of the power of theater.
