Pegasus Theatre Company creates entertaining theatre that explores the human condition with imagination and integrity.
Committed to examining the full spectrum of the human experience, Pegasus stages intimate productions that are thought-provoking, compelling, evocative, and always entertaining. We believe theatre should be transformative; that theatre makes challenging issues more accessible, and helps us to learn about ourselves in exciting and honest ways. We offer adventurous theatergoers provocative and daring entertainment. Our work will inspire you to laugh, cry, and to question yourself and the world we live in.
In addition to its artistic mission, Pegasus is committed to creating paid opportunities for local theatre professionals to work in their community. All theatre artists—actors, directors, designers, and technicians—are paid for their work with Pegasus.
The idea for Pegasus Theatre Company 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 soon realized they needed a third person on the team. They brought on Judi Parrish and the company formally launched in the spring of 2016. Peter, Jennifer, and Judi served as Co-Producing Artistic Directors until Judi left the company in 2017. Now, Peter and Jennifer serve as Co-Producing Artistic Directors.
Pegasus produced it's first play, Proof by David Auburn, in September 2016. Although still a young company, Pegasus has received audience and critical praise alike for their productions over the last several years, with reviews calling productions "...nuanced and visually alluring..." and "...fantastic."
