Mission Statement

People's Light, a professional theatre in Chester County, Pennsylvania, makes plays drawn from many sources to entertain, inspire, and engage our community. We extend our mission of making and experiencing theatre through arts education programs that excite curiosity about, and deepen understanding of, the world around us. These plays and programs bring people together and provide opportunities for reflection, discovery, and celebration.

Description

Now in our 35th season, the People's Light & Theatre Company is a non-profit, professional theatre founded in 1974 by Danny Fruchter, Meg Fruchter, Ken Marini, and Dick Keeler. These artists were committed to two ideals: long-term collaboration among artists with diverse aesthetics and active participation in the life of the immediate community. Today, these principles remain central to People's Light through our mission and programming. Our artistic ensemble engages in significant community collaboration and continues to make connections with new audiences through our nationally recognized arts education program, Project Discovery. This program serves 35,000 young people each year through in-school residencies, student matinees that bring students from 20 high schools to the theatre twice each year for free, special projects tailored to specific youth communities, and a year-round Theatre School for both young people and adults.
