Sundays on Stage is Back … on Saturdays this Season!

By Kayla H. RSS Tue, February 20, 2024

Spread the word: Sundays on Stage is back this spring! This season we will host live performances on Saturdays in the Montgomery Auditorium at Parkway Central Library.

After nearly four years of virtual performances, Sundays on Stage hosted our first in-person event featuring Keepers of Culture at Wynnefield Library in December 2023! The return of this long-running program brings high-quality, family-friendly, and free performances back to delight and inspire our patrons of all ages. We are thrilled to welcome back some of our most talented local performers and introduce you to new entertainers and educators from across Philadelphia.

For our Spring 2024 season, connect to your community with City Love, learn the traditions of Indonesian dance with Modero and Company, laugh along with the Give and Take Jugglers, celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month with The Lady Hoofers, participate in interactive storytelling with Thembi Palmer, and delight in the magic of Enchantment Theatre’s Brave Little Tailor. 

All programs are FREE! Seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. and performances begin at 2 p.m. in the Montgomery Auditorium located on the Ground Floor of the Parkway Central Library. Children, teens, families, and adults are welcome!
