LMC Young Playwrights Dinner Theater
Saturday, December 10, 2011 at 6:45 PM (EST)
Please join the Literary Media and Communications Department of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in a dinner theater showcase of theatrical scenes written by 11th and 12th grade students and performed by professional actors in a staged reading. "Tanganiyka, the Source of the Nile?" will explore what source human beings draw from as they chart and navigate the river, immense as the Nile, that is their lives.
Dinner will precede the performance, beginning at 6:45 p.m., with the Showcase starting at 8 p.m. There will be one 15-minute intermission.
The Showcase is directed by Tracie Jenkins, an acclaimed performer, director, and playwright most recently recognized for her original play "The United States vs. Billie Holiday", and produced by Mark A. Williams, chair of the Literary Media and Communications Department at Duke Ellington.
The St. Mark's Players, an award-winning community theater based on Capitol Hill, is pleased to host this event.
Some scenes include mature material that may not be suitable for children under 14.
