Our Theatre Companies
The Prathers are a true theatrical family that has produced quality theatre for more than 50 years. Tom and Debbie Prather began the company in 1964, and now Will and David Prather continue the legacy that their parents began. The Prathers bring years of expertise to each production and are known for creating a comfortable, but luxurious ambiance in each of their own theatres. Will Prather created the national touring company in 2008 launching in Boston with Beehive, The 60s Musical at Emerson Theatre. Since then the tour company has grown to include international credits from South Korea to Dubai.
