We are a multi-cultural, multi-discipline performing arts organization located in Sacramento, California. Our mission is to provide training and performance opportunities for community residents in the areas of theater, dance and music. We strive to make art and its presentation accessible.
Set in a boardinghouse in Pittsburgh in 1911, Joe Turner’s Come and Gone is the second installment of the ten play series chronicling black life in each decade of the 20th Century. Each resident of the boardinghouse has a different relationship to a past of slavery as well as to the urban present. They include the proprietor, an eccentric clairvoyant with a penchant for country voodoo, a young homeboy up from the south and a mysterious stranger who is searching for his wife.
Celebration Arts is deeply appreciative of those who share our commitment to providing training and performance opportunities and a community that celebrates the human spirit. Every gift makes a difference
Throughout the year, there are many opportunities for you, your organization, business or corporation to be directly involved in, and receive recognition in conjunction with our performances and programs. Your tax deductible contributions will support the training and development efforts and the costs of staging productions.
