QUALITY THEATRE ROOTED IN COMMUNITY
The PTP Company is dedicated to devising ensemble-based plays that uplift the voices of immigrants and POC and is comprised of two professional ensembles. The Sol Ensemble features a rotating, culturally diverse group of actors from PTP’s roster of teaching artists. The Luna Ensemble cast features alumni of the PTP Academy and other emerging artists in their first paid professional roles, offering a pathway to a career in the arts.
The PTP Company performs in traditional and nontraditional spaces, from formal theatres to City Council chambers to classrooms. The ensemble seeks to engage the audience, transforming them from spectators to participants. A facilitated dialogue follows each performance, providing time for audiences to converse with the artists and be equipped with the resources they need to fight social injustices in their own communities.

Directed by Zafi Dimitropoulou, PTP’s Artistic Director, and featuring an all-female ensemble, Las Mariposas explores the struggles and strength of immigrant mothers during the Trump Administration’s zero-tolerance, child-separation immigration policy. We are thrilled to present one final performance of Las Mariposas at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre, the artistic home for Latinos in the theatre district!
