A logo for the PROJcast

Welcome to The 52nd Street Project’s podcast — The PROJcast! The PROJcast offers a behind-the-scenes view of the work of the Project as the kids create and explore theater as well as other art forms, such as song, dance, poetry, film, radio and more. Long term-mentoring relationships form the basis of much of the Project’s work, and these episodes will feature reporting, stories, performances and interviews with kids and adults.

Find all episodes of the PROJcast on these platforms:

The PROJcast theme song was written by Justin & Eric March (Twitter: @eriqmarch), and is performed by Rebecca, Nicole, & Marinda Anderson (Instagram: @marindaanderson, Twitter: @marindanderson).
