Rachel: The Play at Bowie State University, Oct 26

Rachel: The Play
By Angelina Weld Grimke
Directed by Michelle Washington

October 26, 2017 7:30pm

Fine and Performing Arts Center, Black Box Theatre, Bowie State University.

This play from 1917 transcends contemporary socio-political issues through the lead female character. Rachel is a young black woman living with her mother and brother. Upon hearing of the gruesome deaths of both her father and her brother, she decides to never have children of her own and to never marry. While popular and award winning when first written, adding to Grimke’s dramatic experience here in addition to her poetry and novels, Rachel has been produced only twice since its creation.

This performance reading is directed by Adjunct Professor Michelle Washington and supported by BSU’s Alpha Psi Omega Theatre Honor Society.

Cinderella, The Remix

Cinderella, The Remix, written by Psalmayene 24, is a new take on a classic story. There’s no Prince Charming to chase, only the chance to live out the dream of becoming a beat-mixing queen in this girl-powered, music and dance update of the classic fairy tale. Cinderella lives in her stepmother’s basement, practicing her craft at the turntable, since girls aren’t allowed to DJ. But when the super-famous J Prince announces a contest to play his latest jam, Cinderella disguises herself as a boy to compete, and with some help from her Fairy Godmother Hoperah, she gets her chance to spin — at least until midnight.

Wonderworks, a theater for the very young program, involves stories, songs, movement and activities for toddlers through preschool-age children and adults to enjoy together.

Fine and Performing Arts Center, Black Box Theatre, Bowie State University.
