Pembroke Pines Theater of the Performing Arts Announces 2023/24 Season Schedule

The Performing Arts (PPTOPA) was founded in 1993 to provide low-cost, high-quality live theatre. The theater group routinely features local professional and non-professional actors in its productions. The coming season will include three Broadway-style productions including “Twelve Angry Men,” “Barefoot in the Park,” “Death Trap,” and, “Spelling Bee.” 

Twelve Angry Men (Fall 2023)

Twelve Angry Men is an American courtroom drama written by Reginald Rose concerning the jury of a homicide trial. The play explores the deliberations of a jury of a homicide trial, in which a dozen “men with ties and a coat” decide the fate of a teenager accused of murdering his abusive father. In the beginning, they are nearly unanimous in concluding the youth is guilty. One man dissents, declaring him “not guilty”, and he sows a seed of reasonable doubt.

Barefoot in the Park (Winter 2024)

Barefoot in the Park is a romantic comedy by Neil Simon. Corie and Paul Bratter are a newlywed couple. For their first home, they live in an apartment on the top floor of a brownstone in New York City. Corie is optimistic about their future together, while Paul, the more anxious and grounded half of the couple, worries about the various flaws in the apartment, such as a hole in the skylight, their leaky closet, and the lack of a bathtub.

Death Trap (Spring 2024)

“Deathtrap” is a play written by Ira Levin in 1978. It is a thriller in two acts and is known for its plot twists and dark humor. The play was a significant hit and holds the record for the longest-running comedy-thriller on Broadway. “Deathtrap” revolves around a once-successful playwright, Sidney Bruhl, who has been struggling to produce a hit play for some time. 

Spelling Bee (Summer 2024)

“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” is a musical comedy with a book by Rachel Sheinkin and songs by William Finn. The musical centers around a fictional spelling bee set in the geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School.


PPTOPA is committed to providing the community with theatrical productions that inspire, entertain and celebrate the artistic process while incorporating diversity, cultural awareness and outreach through high-quality live theater and education that is available to everyone.

The theater company will present Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. The show follows a wrongfully imprisoned barber seeking to right the wrongs committed against him. He is Johanna’s father, singularly focused on taking bloody revenge.
