Epic Tales from the Land of Melanin

September 4, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - September 10, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

Based on histories of real-life women of color and non-Eurocentric fairytales, EPIC TALES FROM THE LAND OF MELANIN tells a hilarious, imaginative adventure tale of 3 girl warrior-explorers taking on the world! Along the journey, our fierce young heroes must attempt to reclaim the power that was stolen from them and their people. Through audience participation, young audiences will help the heroes defeat monsters and evil forcefields, reaching their goals by activating the forces of community support and action. Kids will laugh, build skills, and understand themselves as part of the journey.

A play for audiences of ALL AGES!!

*This show has PWYC (Pay-What-You-Can) tickets available at the door starting 30 minutes before each show.
