History Pentacle Theatre began in 1954 in a barn on highway 22 across from Oak Knoll Golf Course. Approximately 15 people were the nucleus of that first theatre and with a contribution of $2 from each of them the interior of the barn was white washed and load of swadust spread on the floor. A large tarpaulin was spread in the center to act as a stage. A local mortuary loaned folding chairs and dressing room facilities were established in a chicken coop attached to the rear of the building. The first production was Blithe Spirit directed by Bob Putnam who was a Professor at the Willamette University Drama Department. For more than 50 years Pentacle has been a thriving operation with a $327,000 annual budget. We have the distinction of producing quality productions and remaining "in the black" (a rare achievement these days with so many theatres going under). This unique status would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of so many, and the steadfast patronage of area residents. In 1980 we began selling season tickets. That first year we charged $25 for 10 plays and sold 214 subscriptions. In 2003 we charged from $80-$90 and sold 1,757 subscriptions. 21% of those subscribers come from cities other than Salem. We also have a paid membership of over 500 and a volunteer workforce of over 1000. In January of 2002 Pentacle Theatre opened its own ticket office. Currently located in downtown Salem on Liberty Street between State and Court Streets. Reserved tickets can be purchased there on Mondays and Tuesdays from 12-6pm or Wednesdays through Fridays from 11-4pm
