Description: PTC is a 4050 Academic club. The club’s primary focus is creating high quality theatrical productions for the campus community and the community at large. To that end, you’ll usually find us in the rehearsal room Tues-Thurs 6-9pm. We work hard and it’s worth it! PTC Members collaborate on PTC Projects/Productions as a part of the creative team (actor, director, playwright, designer, stage management, etc.) members have the opportunity to attend field trips to see theatre around the region, collaborate with other clubs on campus to create community building events, attend workshops with guest theatre artists, members also have the opportunity to attend KCACTF in January, participate in the Research & Creativity Expo in the Spring, and best of all to enrich the campus community and the community at large by creating high quality theatrical productions.
We extend our thanks to our amazing student graphic designer, Holly Beenblossom. Holly is responsible for all our 2019-2020 Peru Theatre Company artwork and posters.

WORKSHOPS TUESDAY 3/17 Jindra Black Box Theatre *open to the Peru State community
Visual Communication: from Presentation Aids to the Body
Participants will explore gesture in different forms, from everyday signature and behavioral gestures to larger scale expressive gestures. After defining and exploring the different types of gestures, students will apply their discoveries to their public speaking experiences.
Telling Stories Without Words: The Gesture
Participants will learn the power of gesture to tell a story without words. They will define the difference between indication and commitment and explore the visceral effects of the commanding presence of a committed gesture.
WORKSHOPS WEDNESDAY 3/18 Jindra Black Box Theatre *open to the Peru State community
Telling Stories Without Words: The Body (in the space of the stage)
Using Metaphysical Mask, participants will experience the power of the body to communicate without words or facial expressions. Then, they will create images that tell a story using only the body and space/negative space, proximity, and status.
Telling Stories Without Words: The Partner
As a culmination of these workshops, participants will apply previous lessons as they explore a duo relationship, working to find meaning and story without words. Students will create, perform, and offer feedback on short, silent scenes.
PERFORMANCE WEDNESDAY 3/18 at 6:30pm Jindra Black Box Theatre
Fin, an original work of physical theatre created and performed by Angela Horchem and directed by Laura Lippman.
When Eleanor’s beloved pet fish passes away, she must embark on an emotional journey through laughter and tears to find a new normal after his death. Critically acclaimed actor-creator Horchem navigates the stages of grief in a way that is both funny and profoundly moving. This comedy without words is appropriate for all ages.
Tickets are FREE for PSC students, faculty & staff. $20 general admission, $10 students & seniors
