Pegasus Theater Company will debut in Bordentown City this fall, offering a full season of productions beginning in October and a summer camp beginning as early as August.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Pegasus Theater and the cultural and educational offerings it will bring to Bordentown City,” Bordentown Mayor Jennifer Sciortino said in a prepared statement.
Formerly located in Princeton Junction, Pegasus, in 2020, was nominated for Best Small Theater at the JerseyArts.com People’s Choice Awards.
“I am thrilled to bring our theater company to Bordentown. The first time I went to town I fell in love with it,” production art director Peter Bisgaier said in a statement. “There is a wonderful charm among the shops, restaurants and galleries , and I’ve wanted to make Bordentown our artistic home since that very first day.”
“We’ve been courting Bordentown for a few years because we knew we wanted Pegasus to be part of a vibrant community,” Jennifer Nasta Zefutie, Pegasus’ General Artistic Director, said in the release. “And the more we got to know the residents, business owners and leaders of the city, the more it confirmed that Bordentown City was the right home for Pegasus.”
In addition to contributing to the artistic community, Pegasus hopes to contribute to the vibrancy of the business community in this historic one square mile location.
“There is no doubt that theater and arts organizations promote the economic development of a community,” Zefutie said in the statement. “We hope our presence in town will further support the already thriving stores, galleries and restaurants.”
“Theatre and the arts are an important part of any vibrant community. Given the multitude of programs they have planned, it will be an attraction to the surrounding area, a major asset to a community that has a thriving public arts education program, and a boost to our business community. We look forward to supporting them and helping them put down roots in the small town with lots of charm,” Sciortino said in the statement.
In August, Pegasus will offer a two-week camp for ages 9-14 where students will write and perform their own play. Additional classes and camps throughout the year will be announced.
Pegasus plans to announce its show season in May.
Pegasus will be located in the hall of St. Mary’s School with access from the parking lot at 45 Crosswicks Street, Bordentown.
