Description

An adaptation of Langston Hughes Black Nativity...

Christmas Dinner & Theatre Gala

Join us for an exciting evening of fun, as we enjoy a delicious dinner and watch a live stage play adaptation of The Black Nativity written by poet and unique play writer Langston Hughes.


This stage play is a retelling of the classic Nativity story filled with Traditional Christmas’s carols sung in gospel style, with a few songs created specifically for the show.


Originally written by Langston Hughes, the show was first performed Off Broadway on December 11, 1961, and was one of the first plays written by an African American to be staged there. The show had a successful tour of Europe in 1962, one of its appearances being at the Spoleto Festival of Two Worlds in Italy.


Black Nativity has been performed annually in Boston, Massachusetts and various locations in the U.S.


Come out and join us as we celebrate a Community Christmas Theatre and Banquet Gala.


See you there...
