Open Hand Theater

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Open Hand Theater was born out of Seedling Theater of Oneonta New York. Open Hand Theater began its journey in 1980. Its first steps were from a small Syracuse loft studio space in an abandoned warehouse area later to be known as the revitalized Armory Square. The theater moved to Plymouth Congregational Church in 1985 initiating the first of a series of collaborations in the Syracuse community and beyond that have helped set the theater on its current path. From its earliest days, Open Hand Theater has had a strong commitment to community involvement, education, social concerns and community development.

Early productions included the Imagination Celebration Parade, winter pageants downtown, and children's touring performances.

Uniquely the theater has worked with such diverse groups as the Onondaga Nation School, and the Skomorokh Theater of Siberia - touring Russia and the US with "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

Open Hand Theater conducts innovative collaborations and partnerships. Past collaborations have included productions of "Sleeping Beauty" with Upstate New York Ballet, "Amahl and the Night Visitors" with Plymouth Congregational Church, performances with the Society for New Music, local artist Roger Bingham Morris, and unforgettable production of Mozart's " The Magic Flute" with Syracuse Opera. Most recently Open Hand Theater collaborated with Syracuse Stage, Imagining America, Syracuse University and four neighborhood organizations
