Peach State Summer Theatre, or PSST!, is Valdosta’s premiere professional summer stock theatre. Each summer, dozens of creators, singers, dancers, actors, technicians, and managers gather on the campus of Valdosta State University for a period of nine weeks. During that time, they rehearse, build, and present three musicals in rotating repertory.
The 2014 Peach State Summer Theatre season marks the 25th year of VSU producing professional theatre for the city of Valdosta, the state of Georgia, and beyond. From 1990 to 2004, VSU produced the Jekyll Island Musical Theatre Festival. In 2005, the summer theatre program was relocated to the university and renamed PSST! Then, in 2006, it was designated the Official Musical Theatre of the State of the Georgia by the Georgia Legislature.
VSU’s Jacque Wheeler serves as the artistic director of Peach State Summer Theatre. H. Duke Guthrie is the managing director.
