PORPENTINE

OUR MISSION

To bring professional-level productions at proletariat prices.


Theatre is not for the few but the many!  


Overpriced entertainment often 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 - when public performance is available.


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