Hello and welcome back to the live performing arts!
The Appell Center for the Performing Arts has emerged from the global
pandemic with its eyes, ears and hearts open. Open to the resilient,
compassionate and diverse community we serve and committed to being aware,
responsive and understanding to all of its various needs.
We have taken a hard look at ourselves and desire to make changes to ensure
that the performing arts reflect the unique voices of our neighbors. This starts
with listening and activating what we hear to make sure that everyone that walks
through our doors feels seen, heard and welcome.
We continue our mission to inspire our youth by providing access to a wide
range of performing arts-based learning and experiences. Performing arts
education is more than learning how to sing and dance; it is a creative tool to
teach math, science and history. We are dedicating resources to expanding our
education reach to students of all ages across the county.
During this time in our world we have also remained steadfast in bringing the
very best entertainment onto our stages – from around the corner to across the
country and beyond. From Broadway and family productions to film and Latin
music; from comedy, rock and jazz to blues, folk and R&B. The Appell Center has
something for everyone.
As we navigate the coming season and how the pandemic has affected us all,
we at the Appell Center will be here, welcoming all to celebrate with us the return
of the live performing arts!
