Priscilla Beach Theatre has been educating young actors for more than 70 years. Not only have Paul Newman, Rob Reiner, Peter Gallagher, Pat Carroll, Jennifer Coolidge, Jean Seberg and a host of other acting luminaries learned their craft here at a young age, but Andrew Lack, CEO of Sony Music and Andre Bishop, artistic director of Lincoln Center Theatre, who has won multiple Tony Awards, also trained at PBT. These Hollywood stars, high achievers, and many more have, in part, credited PBT with their success.

PBT has provided this in-depth education with exceptional results for more than 75 years. The creative process, joy of performance, ensemble accomplishment and accolades from enthusiastic audiences are unique experiences here at PBT.
