Andromeda’s Sisters was named for the scene in NPC’s production of ANDROMEDA when, against all common sense and expectation, Poseidon’s daughters swim to save Andromeda from being sacrificed to a violent sea monster. The world today calls for exceptional energy in addressing society’s struggles. NPC believes in expanding a wide net of inclusiveness when it comes to raising funds to support our professional and arts education work. And that’s why we have Andromeda’s Sisters. A three-tiered evening/morning of advocacy, associating and arts, this event celebrates, connects, and articulates women’s issues, voices, interests and livelihoods. When we “swim” to help our sisters, even if it may go against our own best interests in the moment, it’s astounding what can happen for all of those involved. We at NPC thrive on this energy of assisting and making connections. We see how imperative the intersection of arts and advocacy is in serving our communities, families and the industrious talents of women. This thread of humanity weaves through every aspect of our lives. The stronger our neighbor is, the better our lives become and vice versa. *Scheduled performers are subject to change due to actors’s unforeseen schedule changes and filming.
