Organization

mission

“Love art in yourself, and not yourself in art.”

― Konstantin Stanislavski, My Life In Art

With support from you, we will be able to continue our mission of bringing unique theatre to the Boston area and beyond. A play doesn’t just happen - it requires many people and much dedication.

Theatre is a group effort and the audience plays as big a part as any cast member. My years in front of and behind the scenes gives me a keen appreciation for the people who are hungry to be challenged and reached by the personal nature that only the stage can bring.

 

Our company has ambitious goals and you have helped us move a step closer to them.

 

We bring professional-level productions at proletariat prices.

 

Overpriced musical entertainment and straight plays priced out of reach of a normal night out whittle down the audience. Couple this with the competition of inexpensive distractions available to us all and it is obvious why seats are unfilled.

 

Porpentine seek to redress this imbalance and bring human interaction back to the everyday life of all.
