General Information:

Founded in 1991 by actor and Chelsea native Jeff Daniels. In the early 1900s, the building that houses our "Garage Theatre" was a used car and bus garage owned by Jeff Daniels grandfather. In 1989, the building was purchased and renovated by Mr. Daniels and later donated to The PRTC. From 1990 to 1999, we worked and performed in the garage. In 1999, a $2.2 million capital campaign was launched to expand the theatre. The building was closed for 18 months during construction for new administrative offices, stage, and theatre space. The doors opened again in January, 2001 and in March, 2004 the mortgage was paid in full.
