  • Concert in The Glen: Dan and Claudia Zanes

    Newlyweds Grammy Award winner Dan Zanes and Haitian-American jazz vocalist Claudia Zanes perform on our new intimate, outdoor stage on Saturday, June 19 at 1pm. The audience is invited to dance and sing along in what might be called a casual – and subversively educational – party atmosphere. The music is homespun, joyful, sophisticated, and artful. This concert is intended for audiences of all ages!

  • Folk Tales in The Glen

    Join the Folk Tale Friends in this socially distanced, outdoor edu-tainment offering for families with young children. Two storytellers lead us through new interactive tales about caring, pride, and healing. Our adventures are inspired by South Asian, Korean, and Lenape folk tales; and science! Recommended for wigglers and gigglers ages 2 through 8, each 45-minute frolic full of audience participation will enchant the whole family.

  • SummerBLAST

    It’s time to get off Zoom and get outside! People’s Light summer programs return with full-day outdoor sessions that embrace theatre essentials—voice, movement, imagination, and the open air. Students ages 7 to 18, grouped with their peers in 2 or 3-week sessions, learn from professional theatre artists as we explore the transformative power of storytelling and collaboration. So, unplug, get moving, and most importantly, have a blast this summer!
