August 10, 2015 Norwalk, Conn. – Mark your calendars, on Sunday–September 27, 2015, a FREE jubilant street festival will be held on Wall Street in Norwalk to promote awareness and generate excitement for the grand re-opening of the historic Wall Street Theater.
After a long hiatus, the structure is set to re-open its doors in the spring of 2016 as a non-profit, multi-media performance space. The street festival honoring the theater will take place right on Wall Street in Norwalk from 12pm-6pm and promises to be a day of fun, food, and entertainment for the whole family.
Attendees can jam out to live musical performances to 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 the theater will be given and staff and advisors will be on hand to talk about future plans for the theater.
Executive Director Bob Kennedy commented, “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.”
