Divine Stage Works was founded in 2005 by Peyton Pugmire as a way to fulfill a "divine" goal to start a Boston area theatre company and stage one-of-a-kind productions for the sake of quality entertainment, and most importantly, inspiration for all. As reflected by the compass in the theatre's logo, Divine Stage Works continues to take live theatre in exciting and unexpected directions. Divine Stage Works' first season was housed at the Actor's Workshop in South Boston. The theatre is now proud to call Jamaica Plain its new home and looks forward to sharing "the divine" with the community at large and beyond.
Nestled in the epicenter of Jamaica Plain, The Footlight Club is America's Oldest Community Theater. Organized in 1877 by prominent socialites, The Footlight Club continues to produce one of a kind community productions with the heart and dedication from its many talented volunteers.
