BORDENTOWN CITY, HERE WE COME!Pegasus is returning to the stage in a new space in the downtown Bordentown district and will offer a full season of productions starting in October and a summer camp in August.
"We couldn't be more excited to be in this new location that offers our patrons everything they could want in a complete night out—great restaurants, charming shops, and now professional theatre!" said Managing Artistic Director Jennifer Nasta Zefutie.
Pegasus has a full season planned, including three mainstage productions and their first family friendly holiday show. Details about shows and performances will be announced in May.
"We're excited to welcome Pegasus Theater and the cultural and educational offerings they will be bringing to Bordentown City,” said Bordentown City Mayor Jennifer Sciortino.
Formerly of Princeton Junction, Pegasus quickly became known for their intimate, thought-provoking, and entertaining productions. Lauded as “an example of a creative team perfectly using a small, intimate space to create an evening that is as powerful as it is funny” (TimeOFF), past productions have been reviewed as
“nuanced and visually alluring” (Town Topics) and “creat[ing] a sort of theatrical magic” (TimeOFF). In 2020, Pegasus was nominated for Best Small Theatre in the JerseyArts.com People’s Choice Awards.
"There's such a vibrant artistic community in Bordentown that we're thrilled to become a part of. Bordentown is already a destination town, and we hope to bring even more people to town to dine, shop, and enjoy the arts," said Producing Artistic Director Peter Bisgaier.
Pegasus will be located in the St. Mary’s School Hall with access from the parking lot at 45 Crosswicks St., just a short block and a half walk from the downtown Bordentown restaurant and shopping district.
“Theater and the arts are an important element of any vibrant community. Given the full spate of programming they have planned, this will be a draw for the surrounding region, a great asset to a community that has a thriving public education arts program, and a boost for our business community. We look forward to supporting them and helping them grow roots in the little city with a lot of charm," said Mayor Sciortino.
Create and perform your very own play! Students will work together to write an original theatre piece. Then, students will learn acting techniques while they rehearse their play. The camp will culminate with an evening performance of the students' original work for family and friends.
