Pegasus Theatre Production History

30 Years of Comedic Excellence and Counting!
Pegasus Theatre has performed over a hundred shows in its thirty-year history. With over 30 of those in Living Black & White™ (our signature style), it’s no wonder people think of that first! We hope people get just as much pleasure from our non-Black & White offerings. Here’s a complete history. Note that over 80% of these shows were either world premieres or regional premieres! At Pegasus Theatre, we love new comedies!
