Current Project

Palefsky Collision Project

Over the course of three weeks, 20 extraordinary high school students convene at the Alliance Theatre to explore and wrestle with the themes found in Walt Whitman’s collection of poetry, Leaves of Grass. During this process, they work with some of Atlanta’s most courageous artists, and under the direction of Patrick McColery and with the incomparable playwright Pearl Cleage, they create a singular and wholly contemporary theatrical event. Come experience these young artists discover their voice and share it fearlessly on the Hertz Stage.

Performances of the 2016 Palefsky Collision Project will take place at 7:30 pm on July 29, 2016 and 2:30 pm on July 30, 2016.
All tickets are free to the public.  

Both performances are now SOLD OUT - there will be a walk-up waitlist started 30 minutes prior to the performance start time, first come, first served. 

Friday, July 29 at 7:30 pm

Saturday, July 30 at 2:30 pm
