Biography and History

Princeton Summer Theater was founded in 1968 by three members of Theatre Intime who sought to continue acting during the summer offseason. The resulting troupe, called Summer Intime, was successful and inspired successive seasons of summer offerings, as well as the formation of a board of trustees to oversee the group. The name of Summer Intime was eventually changed to Princeton Summer Theater, and the summer performances in the Hamilton-Murray Theater remain among the most popular staged at Princeton.
