Planet Connections changes the landscape of New York theatre this year.
The award-winning Planet Connections Theatre Festivity
June 12 – July 9, 2017
at The Clemente, 107 Suffolk Street, NYC
“The concept of being a fringe-group is no longer to be an outsider, but to be inclusive, connected … aware” says Brock Harris Hill, producing artistic director of the Festivity, “… the Planet Connections Festivity is more than just a theatre festival … it’s a game-changer, and is designed to invoke the power of art in motivating philanthropy, community outreach, and creates opportunities to connect our audience and artists through social change,” he concluded.
Within the Festivity are multiple theater, film and music festivals. Planet Connections’ artists use their work to shed light on causes that matter and inspire audiences to get involved. All of PCTF’s artists raise awareness for an organization or topic of their own selection.
Furthering its message, PCTF is the country’s first eco-friendly arts festivity as our marketing and promotional materials are eco-conscious in design and production. The relationships formed during the festivity allow our artists to find new audiences and forge new partnerships, turning PCTF artists into leaders and inspirations within the industry. Since its inception, Planet Connections has presented more than 250 Full Theater Productions, nearly 100 Staged Readings, and has made a difference to more than 300 charities. Planet Connections was featured on the Sundance Channel, NY1, and in The New York Times.
