Calling all performers of music, theater, and dance!

The Palace Street Players is a new group of volunteer art makers who will create and perform work in a socially-distant, outdoor setting.

The first performance will be August 14th (rain date August 21) for a local senior living community!

Performers will plan projects with Artistic Director Lisette Shiffer, using input from the community in the spirit of Mutual Aid and collaboration.

Planning and rehearsals will take place over Zoom. Performances will involve separate elements designed to work together as a whole.

Professionals and amateurs are welcome! You must be at least 18 years old to join the group.

Please email if you would like to participate!
