Encore Michigan

Peppermint Creek Theatre Company

The company is named after the creek that runs near founder Chad Swan-Badgero’s childhood home in Mason, MI.

As a fifth-grader, Swan-Badgero was looking through old maps of Mason and found where his house would have been, and the creek was named Peppermint Creek. This stuck with Swan-Badgero, and when it came time to name the group, it seemed appropriate and personal. The first two productions were presented at Mount Hope Presbyterian Church, and then moved to the MSU Gardens Conservatory.

From 1995-2000, Peppermint Creek established itself as a new, fresh, and vital performing arts group that took chances and believed in the power of theatre.

When Mr. Swan-Badgero returned from New York City, he brought with him the desire to completely establish PCTC as a non-profit organization with a full season of shows. Now in their twentieth season of shows as a non-profit, Peppermint Creek has made huge strides in creating a new voice in Lansing. Peppermint Creek performances have consistently been recognized by critics, and PCTC has boasted some of the finest actors that Lansing, Chicago, New York, and beyond have to offer.
