Welcome to the Professional Theatre Council of St. Louis.

PTC was founded in 2004 to promote and celebrate excellence in professional St. Louis Theatre. The primary catalyst for fulfilling our mission is our annual presentation of the Kevin Kline Awards. We also serve our mission by providing other various services and programming: sharing of program ads among constituent theatres, providing “Now Playing” lobby posters, partnering with theatres for our Education Program that enables students to attend professional performances, maintaining this website and theatre directory, and organizing Round Table meetings for our constituent theatres to meet and discuss shared obstacles and possibilities.

The Kevin Kline Awards honor theatre artists and productions in 22 categories. The awards are named in honor of St. Louis' own Tony and Academy Award winner Kevin Kline. Kline, who now lives in New York, is delighted. "I've long been under the impression that people didn't lend their names to awards until after they had died. I’m in pretty good health right now, and feeling all the better for having received this lovely and unexpected honor. It's gratifying to think that I can continue to be associated with theater excellence in the city where so many of my earliest theater impressions were formed."

PTC is a non-profit, 501c(3) organization.
