The upcoming festive season will exhibit an array of five enthralling and eclectic productions, blending classic theatre with cutting-edge expressions of human experience.

Zak Berkman, Producing Artistic Director at People’s Light, expressed his excitement for the anniversary, envisioning it as a vibrant, joyous communal celebration, complete with compelling stories, laughter, and a deluge of music.

“We are thrilled to celebrate five decades of People’s Light with a season that embraces our rich history as we reach new creative heights,” said Zak Berkman, Producing Artistic Director at People’s Light. “A great party involves a vibrant, joyful community coming together to connect and feel our hearts expand. Our 50th will be that kind of party, with lots of music, laughter, and stories that illuminate the distinctive hopes and dreams of human life.”

The 2024-25 season will walk theatre-goers through Appalachia in ‘The Porch on Windy Hill‘, a fresh play peppered with traditional music. Audiences can also look forward to an imaginative take on Peter Pan in ‘Peter Panto: A Musical Panto’, as well as the groundbreaking drama ‘A Raisin in the Sun’ that challenges societal norms.
