Pontiac Theatre IV is an independent community theatre group presenting live theatre to Pontiac and Oakland County since 1969. Theatre IV presents four or five shows per season including a musical, a straight show, a children’s show and a musical review. The 2019-20 Season shows include, the hilarious horror spoof Curse of the Werewolf; the family favorite Anne of Avonlea; our children’s show Disney’s The Lion King, Jr, a Musical Review performed by our teenage members; and one of the all time classics of the dramatic stage, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

The story
Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl in town, and Danny Zuko, the school’s coolest greaser, have a secret summertime romance – but when they get back to school, everything is different. Sandy attempts to navigate the tricky Rydell High School social waters and catch Danny’s attention again, but Danny is chiefly concerned with maintaining his tough-guy reputation. In the end, the Pink Ladies help Sandy figure out how to win back the leader of the Burger Palace Boys.
