PTP’s People Storm the Palace, A Social Justice Theatre Festival at UPCA

In this youth-created theatrical extravaganza, the entire People’s Theatre Project community is united for one celebratory evening of joyful resistance at the United Palace Theatre in June of each year. Free and open to the public, The People Storm the Palace regularly attracts 500 attendees including participants, family members, local artists and elected officials.

The celebratory evening features a carefully curated selection of 10-15 original theatrical works generated in People’s Theatre Project’s School Partnerships and Public Programs. The performance line up seeks to showcase a balance of age groups, theatrical disciplines, and social justice themes addressed. For many young people, creating small moments of success is a critical indicator for long-term achievement. “The People Storm the Palace” aims to create, in grand fashion, an indelible memory of accomplishment for each child who comes through the doors of People’s Theatre Project.
