This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 29-10-2011 29-10-2011 15 Rosie's Theater Kids: Students on Strike Rosie's Theater Kids and Howl! Arts Project present this original musical conceived and directed by Jeff Statile, based on the true story of Moton High School, whose students walked out of their school and into history. The show is part of the 3rd annual HOWL! ARTS PROJECT. To protest the overcrowded and inferior facilities at her Virginia school, 16-year-old Barbara Johns organizes and leads a two-week strike during which students refuse to attend classes. The students call upon lawyers from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to help them in their struggle for equal educational opportunities. Their case landed in the Supreme Court as part of 1954's Brown v. Board of Education, which declared segregation in public education unconstitutional. The ensemble includes Kya Brickhouse, Zi Ying Cao, Duaun Chappel, Celine Cortez, Dean Ford, Jassah Gittens, Rue Hogarth, Krishawn Lane, Karen Li, Christian Lizarbe, Tiffany Quijano, Anatola Pabst, Brent Ravelo, Nia Robinson-Pile, Jose Rojas, and Michel Wolinsky. HOWL! ARTS PROJECT 2011 is a month-long series of non-stop music, film, theater, performance art, burlesque, drag entertainment, and pure family fun, running October 1-31 at Theatre 80. The series benefits HELP (Howl! Emergency Life Project), the newly established emergency assistance fund supporting East Village artists of all disciplines, which also provides all services offered by parent administrator: The Actors Fund. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=94339 Theatre 80 true DD/MM/YYYY
