The Pajama Game is a musical based on the novel, 7 and a Half Cents by Richard Bissell. The story focuses on a pajama factory in the 1950s and its workers plan to go on strike if they do no get a seven and a half cent raise. The Trent production is directed by fourth-year Trent Business Administration student, Jessica Bommarito and is performed by this year’s ASTC cast. The cast, crew, and band are Trent students, alumni, and faculty.

The ASTC was founded by six Trent students in 2003 after a successful production of “Anne of Green Gables,” which inspired the name of the theatre company. The ASTC has produced a musical every year since 2003.
