WHO IS POWER STREET THEATRE?
PST was not founded to just be a theatre company- we were founded with a bigger purpose, founded to create meaningful change in the theatre world and within diverse communities. We believe theatre has the ability to transform lives, redefine spaces, preserve diverse stories, and mobilize people to gather from all walks of life.
This is theater that is urgent, necessary, and beautiful. Growing up in West Philly, with much family in North Philly, I had no idea theater existed in Philadelphia. Theaters didn’t put up posters in our neighborhood. Theater wasn’t “for us.” We weren’t invited to the table. Power Street is building a new table. One Philly--and this nation--desperately needs."

SILUETA, A New Musical
Inspired by the arts and life of Cuban American performance artist Ana Mendieta, SILUETA paints the story of two women, Dinora and Khalila, who explore friendship, forgiveness, and the true meaning of home.
Power Street thrives with the continued support of our community. Artists are being hit very hard right now. If you have extra funds, please know your donation directly support our artists and programming!
