To our Planet Connections Community of Artists & Audiences,
We at Planet Connections have always worked to draw attention to social justice issues because art can be a force for change. Planet Connections was founded in 2008 to give activist artists a creative home and a place to be heard. Throughout the years we have championed over 300 different social justice organizations by having our writers, actors, directors, designers, stage managers and staff, draw attention to the social justice issues of our time. Planet Connections continues to be committed to standing with black lives and to providing inclusive spaces for all our artists. Our doors are always open, and we encourage you to come forward into a discussion with us, so that we can do even more to contribute as allies. We are with you now, as we always have been.
Fostering a diverse cross-section of performances, the Festivity seeks to inspire artists and audiences both creatively and fundamentally, in a festive atmosphere. At the heart of the Festivity are like-minded individuals striving to create professional, meaningful theatre, while supporting organizations, which give back to the community at large.

They can take away the building and all our fancy equipment, but we’ll still create theater…Theater artists have been adapting for thousands of years so we’ll make do, like always.” Click HERE for programming and more information.
