NORWALK, Conn. – There will be a free street festival Sunday on Wall Street in Norwalk to promote awareness and generate excitement for the grand reopening of the historic Wall Street Theater.
After a long hiatus, the structure is set to reopen in the spring as a nonprofit, multimedia performance space.
The street festival honoring the theater will take place from noon to 6 p.m. and will feature food and entertainment for the whole family.
Attendees can jam to live musical performances by national acts with local roots. Singer-songwriter and Norwalk native P.J. Pacifico will start things off, followed by gypsy-swing quartet Caravan of Thieves and finally the powerhouse vocals of (Deep Banana Blackout vocalist) Jen Durkin & The Business.
Children’s music will be provided by Norwalk’s own Marcia Louis.
Tours of the theater will be given, and staff and advisers will be on hand to talk about plans for the theater.
Executive Director Bob Kennedy said: “The first 100 years of the Wall Street Theater brought the biggest stars of American theater, presidents of the United States, award-winning films and legendary musicians to Norwalk. This event is the first of many that will help bring Wall Street back to its roots as a center of entertainment and culture.”
The Wall Street Theater is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. To learn more about the theater, visit www.wallstreettheater.org .
