Itinerant Theatre presents groundbreaking play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf by Ntozake Shange April 5-8
Itinerant Theatre will present For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf by Ntozake Shange April 5 and 7 @ 7pm, April 6 @ 8:30 pm following the Black Heritage Gallery opening, and Sunday April 8 @ 3pm in Ben Mount Theatre of Central School, 809 Kirby St. This groundbreaking “choreopoem” is a spellbinding collection of vivid prose and free verse narratives about and performed by black women. Capturing the brutal, tender and dramatic lives of contemporary Black women, For Colored Girls… offers a transformative, riveting evening of provocative dance, music and poetry. Poet Ishmael Reed observes: “No contemporary writer has Ms. Shange’s uncanny gift for immersing herself within the situations and points-of-view of so many different types of women.”
The play is about the women, about who they are and what they have experienced. Although the stories these women tell are tales of struggle, the play is ultimately uplifting. The seven women grieve, but they also celebrate their lives, their vitality, their colorfulness. The talented cast of local actors are “lady in brown” – Bianca Augustine, “lady in yellow” – Sierra Demouchet, “lady in purple” – Tasha Guidry, “lady in red” – Shereka Jackson, “lady in green” – Lauren Edwards, “lady in blue” – Alana Jennings, “lady in orange” – Hannah Barker. Natalie Sell is Stage Manager, Michelle Brunson is Designer, Tony James is Choreographer and Joy Pace is Director.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $12.50 for Seniors, and $10 for Students with ID. Purchase at www.itineranttheatre.com or call Itinerant Theatre at 337-436-6275 for reservations or information. ##
