Steve Fatla, Jay Keenan and John E. Lane, Jr. created The Summer Company in 1993 as a creative summertime outlet. Fatla is head of the Carlow University Theatre Group, while Keenan and Lane were producer and technical director of the Duquesne University Red Masquers. A production team of Tim Colbert, Kim Zelonis, David Curren, Chris Rudolph and Cathy Evans (now Rudolph) was assembled in 1997. Some producers have left to pursue their careers in other avenues or cities, and new producers have joined the company. The constant is the mission of the company “to produce quality productions of classical and soon to be classic plays in the company of friends concentrating on plays written between 1850 through 1950.” The current producers are John E. Lane, Jr., Rebecca J. Stevens, Jill Jeffrey, W. Mark Snyder, Sarah Murtha, Heather Clark, Dale Hess, and Justin Sines. All productions have taken place at Duquesne University, Carlow University and, most recently, the Gemini Theatre Company.
