As we move into our third season, we are thrilled with the support we have received from our Pass Christian community for our local theatre. We have now produced over 10 shows that have seen close to sell-out crowds each night.
The PCTP has two goals:
To bring live theatre to Pass Christian residents and neighbors in surrounding coastal communities and cities.
Our second goal is to attract theatergoers to the Pass from surrounding areas to heighten awareness of the beauty of Pass Christian along with its numerous eateries, attractions, events, and organizations. With increased tourism comes increased revenues for our businesses and city.
The PCTP is program of work of Pass Christian Main Street Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships are allocated strictly to costs associated with productions and workshops (e.g. costumes, sets, props, publicity, rights, etc).
We will offer four shows this season including PoBoy Theatre (our Pass Christian dinner theatre). Our schedule will open in November with “The 2nd Fisherman’s Play”. Additional performances (subject to change) will include: “Henderson Point” (the third installment of Trey Fayard’s Pass Christian productions), “Sly Fox”, and our second musical “Guys and Dolls”. PCTP has an open auditions policy to allow as many local actors, singers, musicians, etc of all ages to participate. We depend heavily upon residents volunteering their time and talents.
Community theatre has always depended upon it’s audiences for operating revenue. It also relies heavily upon sponsorship from friends like you. Last year we were able to make improvements to the acoustics in the Randolph Center and to purchase our first phase of theatre lighting. Over the upcoming season, we hope to assist the City with purchasing a curtain for the stage. We have enclosed additional information about PCTP and our sponsorship levels. Please take a moment to review the information.
Thank you in advance for your help in making the PASS CHRISTIAN THEATRE PROJECT the successful community endeavor it has become.
