For the next few months, the Troy Foundry Theatre will be having outdoor shows on the weekend.
The Troy Foundry Theatre has put together the Trojan Alley Project. From now until June local artists will have a chance to perform next to the Franklin Alley in Troy.
The idea behind the project is to give people a chance to showcase their talents. Saturday was the was open mic night hosted by Michael Gregg. He started off the evening by playing his banjo. Anybody from the public can sign up if they want to perform. People are encouraged to sing, recite poetry or do anything artistic. Troy Foundry Theatre officials say the pandemic was tough, so they are thankful they can have in-person shows again.
"Getting back to being able to either participate or simply view the arts I think is really important for the community. It's important for the Capital Region. It's important for Troy, specifically where we have our own home base," said Emily Curro, the producing executive director at the Troy Foundry Theatre.
For the time being, they will be operating at 40 percent capacity. The shows are free. Anyone from the public is encouraged to attend.
