Tickets Now Available for ‘1776’
Join Pickerington Community Theatre as we present the musical-comedy “1776”. Winner of three Tony Awards and on Broadway for 1,217 performances, great tunes, high drama, and also high comedy are all found in this classic American musical. “1776” was made into a hit film in 1972 and also experienced a Broadway comeback in 1997!

PCT offering summer theatre camp through Missoula Children’s Theatre: Register by May 31
This June, Pickerington Community Theatre will host Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) for a week-long theatre camp for children entering grades 1 through 12. Camp dates are June 15 through 20, 2015.
The week-long camp begins with an open group audition (Monday, June 15) and culminates in two public performances (Friday evening, June 19 and Saturday afternoon, June 20). 50 to 60 students will be cast and well-rehearsed throughout the week, learning lines, songs and choreography to perform as an ensemble in producing a full-length musical. PLEASE NOTE: This year, ALL who register before the registration cap for their age group is met are guaranteed a role.
All of MCT’s shows are original adaptations of children’s stories and fairy tales — a twist on the classic stories that we know and love.
PCT will present MCT’s take on the classic, Rapunzel.
The registration deadline is May 31, so don’t delay! Go to our Missoula page for all the details and a registration form. We look forward to presenting this exciting opportunity to your child(ren) this summer!
