PIC’s annual All-Ages Salon at Park Hill Orchard is a celebration of the artistic process and is day one of our two day PIC Kids Fall Fest event. Join us for this sharing of new, original works created and performed by youth and adult artists in an iconic outdoor setting. The lineup includes:
New music from Carrie Ferguson (of The Grumpytime Club)
Original music by youth artist Ruthie Eppsteiner
A work-in-progress showing of PIC's own 2023 Residency Piece,
A sharing by new comedy and theatrical team of youth artists
June Stackhouse and Bowie Gerlitz Iglesias
A new theatrical scene by youth artist Andalucia Wein and friends
All shared pieces are designed for a family-friendly audience. In addition to premiering their new work, performers will engage in a conversation sharing insights into their creative practice with the audience.
You can find us on the Park Hill Orchard Willow Stage (right next to the farm store.) Audience members are encouraged to bring blankets and low-seat chairs, and are welcome to come early and stay late to buy apples and enjoy the beauty of Park Hill! Rain Date will be Sun Oct 1st, 10-11am
This event is FREE to attend, but we'd love for you to let us know you plan to come.
Present a Piece
Are you interested in presenting a work-in-progress as part of a future salon? We are now accepting submissions for Summer and Fall 2023. We'd love to have you!
If you have a play, scene, musical, song, poem, dance, or any other piece of performance art that you would like to present to a live audience, you've come to the right place. Presenters share roughly 10 minutes or less of their works-in-progress followed by 10-15 minutes dedicated to feedback and dialogue about the piece.
This program is made possible with support from Massachusetts Cultural Council. We are so grateful for their support.
