About the Platteville Municipal
The current group, Platteville Community
Theatre (or PCT), began in 1980. Robert Schlicher, who had moved to
Platteville from Beaver Dam, suggested that Platteville develop a
similar community theatre group to utilize the stage at the Platteville
Municipal Building with its historical ties to the city. The company
originally started as a group of ten.
