WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Theatre at the Center's 2010 - 2011 Theatre for Young Audiences Season continues with I Have A Dream, a compelling dramatization of the life and times of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr one of the most influential and charismatic leaders of the "American Century".
I Have A Dream captures a great moment in history. Inspired by the arrest of Rosa Parks, Dr. King becomes the prime mover behind the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott, putting a philosophy of non-violent protest to work. He gains national recognition and becomes the dominant force in the Civil Rights Movement during its decade of greatest achievement. Audiences will be inspired by this reenactment of his great "I Have a Dream" speech, and his dream of "lifting our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood."
