Our Theatre sets a stage of abundance. Its natural splendor stops us, breathless, whether we’re pondering a starlit sky, or diving into a play, wrapped in the thrill of its words and its ways. The stories, the setting, the poetry, the players - they lure us on to this great adventure. Fill us with that euphoric, sun-on-shoulders feeling.
There are worlds within worlds here, so make the most of your time and explore all that APT has to offer, on stage and off.
We seek above all to share our sincere enthusiasm for the great plays, the works of Shakespeare in particular, and more recently the American Classics, with a gloriously large, diverse and widespread audience - an audience remarkable for its openness, curiosity and profound appetite for storytelling.
We are devoted to these stories, which delve into the exhilarating question of what it is to be human, giving expression to those moments that are inexpressible and searching for a common truth among us all. Our best attempt at answering these questions relies heavily on the gifts and abilities of a permanent company of actors, working to make the words seem effortless and penetrating, transformative and elevating. Together with directors, designers, coaches and other artists, this collaboration guarantees that these plays are not old, dusty or irrelevant, but are stories that can balance our souls and connect us; that they will speak to the audience and will continue to be contemporary for all seasons, and truth for all times.
And where better to experience this than in the vastness of a starry night in the woods of APT?
