PVTC supported 103 students in writing and performing 9 brand-new scripts while mentoring 33 high school interns and employing 22 teaching artists. Thousands of COVID health screening forms and temperature checks have been processed to offer safe in-person programming. 2021 has been about helping kids who were beaten down by the isolation of COVID climb out of a cave and back into a community that loves and accepts them.

PVTC has doubled down with a robust plan to get us back to a safer, healthier, and more enjoyable PVTC for all, including:

  • Full productions inside onstage
  • Air filtration in Lane Hall to keep particles out of the air and allow us to be inside during the seemingly inevitable wildfire season
  • On-site COVID testing for actors & staff to allow for safe productions
  • A return to a comprehensive slate of after-school programming
  • Outreach in local schools
  • Workshops & opportunities for adult community members
  • Increased diversity and pay equity in leadership, staffing, volunteers, and participants
  • Updates & improvements to our lighting & sound booth, grid, seating risers, and stage

With your support, we can reopen the Lane Hall doors in 2022 and transform more lives!

We have a new name for donors: Collaborators

That’s because collaboration is at the heart of everything we do here at PVTC. From rehearsing shows to building sets to funding programs, we must work together to bring our visions to reality.

Contributions support all aspects of PVTC including scholarships, teaching artists, designers, technicians, education, outreach, and I.D.E.A. efforts.

As you contemplate your year-end giving, we ask you to consider becoming a collaborator with a tax-deductible donation so we can reopen our doors with a safer, more welcoming Lane Hall for all in 2022!
