Now You Can Bring Us To You
Here at Power Street we put our focus on storytelling, playwright’s text, and our community. All of our shows have minimal technical needs and can travel easily from our street to yours.
All booked performances include post-show audience conversations facilitated by one of our resident artists. For educational settings, Power Street has extended lesson plans available. Each Power Street show is connected to contemporary themes and dialogue – making them perfect for those studying history, sociology, anthropology, gender dynamics, and public policy.

"The opportunity to attend Morir Sonyando was incredible for our students from Olney Charter High School. The students had never seen a play performed live..Several of the students who came are English Language Learners who are emergent bilinguals. Seeing a play performed in Spanish and English was eye-opening for them--they expressed excitement about seeing a professional play performed in multiple languages. The subject matter was also compelling. Immediately after the play, students started talking about their own experiences witnessing domestic violence. Seeing professional actors take this subject matter seriously opened the door for them to see their own experiences as part of larger structural issues, and allowed them to share with each other. They left the theater feeling bigger and seeing themselves as the tellers of stories...I look forward to how students who saw the performance will be able to use what they learned to bring their own experiences and ideas into the limelight to share important topics with others."
