Fall Play: Play at Home Project
In March 2020 a bunch of theaters were producing plays, business as usual, when a global pandemic had other plans. Prioritizing the safety of their communities, they made difficult decisions to cease or postpone programming for the remainder of their seasons. But the story doesn’t end there. With a spirit of resilience, adaptation, and invitation, they came together to create the Play At Home project, a series of short plays commissioned specifically for this moment of unprecedented isolation to inspire joy and connection for all.
In other words, COVID-19 may have closed the theater buildings, but you can still Play At Home. See playathome.org for more info!
Pioneer Theatre Guild is proud to present 8 of these unique plays that are made to be presented virtually – and all will be directed by our PTG students!

If you are interested in purchasing “Donation Access” to our event for $5, $10, $15, it will help PTG tremendously! We are charged a fee on every ticket processed (even if they are free), so your donations will help offset this cost!
We thank you all for your support!
HOW TO STREAM
When you complete your transaction, you will receive an email with your “ticket” and instructions on how you can watch the plays.
You will be given an access code that is for ONE device only.
Note: ONE ticket per device. You cannot share the access code with anyone else.
If you need to view the plays on more than one device, you need to “purchase” another ticket (remember, they’re free unless you choose to donate).
There is a limit of 4 ticket (meaning access on 4 devices) purchases per email address.
Here is an example of what will happen if you try to access the plays on more than one device:
If you click the link on your phone to see if it works and then click the link on your computer, the phone will no longer be able to stream the show and just the computer will be able to view the plays. Alternatively, if you are watching as a family together on the same device and one person goes off to view the plays on their phone, the family will lose access on the device and the play will only be available on the phone.
