Mission, Vision, and Values

Pegasus Theatre NJ seeks to illuminate and elevate human experiences through courageous and imaginative theatrical storytelling.  We envision a vibrant community engaged in performance and education, where theatre artists and patrons, alike, are seen, heard, and valued. 

Pegasus Theatre NJ is guided in our work by these enduring values.


  •  Diversity and Equity are Strengths

    • We are strengthened by the diversity of human experiences, and how they come to the stage and change audiences.

    • Our work is stronger by the many voices, perspectives, and experiences we bring to the organization, both on and off stage.

    • The diverse and emerging voices of current and future theatre artists contribute to access and experience.


  • Theatre is an Intimate Experience

    • Theatre transforms individuals, fosters understanding, and creates opportunity for courageous conversations.

    • Theatre empowers individuals through self-actualization, imagination, and empathy.


  • Theatre Artists and Audiences are Seen and Heard

    • Theatre is a space where all people feel complete, heard, respected, understood, valued, and connected.

    • Artists’ work is valued and fairly compensated.

    • We have a responsibility to inspire, mentor, and train the theatre artists of the future.


  • Artists Rise in Creative Playgrounds

    • The work on and off the stage is pursued with honesty, vulnerability, and authenticity.

    • Theatre is the practice of exploration and discovery, whether approaching a classic piece or a new work.

Our History

The idea for Pegasus Theatre was conceived in the winter of 2014 when Peter Bisgaier and Jennifer Nasta Zefutie were acting in a show together and discovered their shared dream of founding a theatre company that created productions of the highest artistic value.  The two began planning and preparation, and the company formally launched in the spring of 2016 as Pegasus Theatre Project and as the resident theatre company of the West Windsor Arts Council in Princeton Junction, NJ.  

After three years of successfully producing at the WWAC, the company began the search for its own home where it could offer a full season of shows, educational programming, and community outreach.  While engaging in this search, Pegasus continues to build its audience base and its reputation in the theatre community by participating in projects like Diner Theatre with ArtPride NJ.   And in 2020, Pegasus was thrilled to be nominated by artist peers for a Discover Jersey Arts People's Choice Award in the category for Best Small Theatre (fewer than 300 seats).
