Peach State Summer Theatre, or PSST, is Valdosta's premiere professional summer stock theatre. Each summer, dozens of singers, dancers, technicians, managers, and creators gather on the campus of Valdosta State University for approximately 10 weeks, and during that time, they rehearse, build, and present three musicals in rotating repertory.

Peach State Summer Theatre started in 1990 as the Jekyll Island Musical Theatre Festival. In 2005, the summer theatre program was relocated to the university and renamed PSST. The 2020 season was cancelled due to the spread of COVID-19. The 2021 season featured a 10-performance run of "The Marvelous Wonderettes: Dream On," offered both a live studio audience experience and live streaming to audiences at home, and won eight Broadway World Tallahassee Regional Awards. The 2022 season marked the return to three shows.

The Georgia Legislature designated Valdosta State's summer stock theatre program the Official Musical Theatre of the State of Georgia.

VSU's Hank Rion serves as the artistic director of Peach State Summer Theatre. H. Duke Guthrie is the managing director.
