CROWNS by Regina Taylor

Crowns by Regina Taylor is a coming-of-age story about Yolanda, a self destructive African American teen whose mother sends her away from Brooklyn to live with Grand Mother Shaw down south. After the violent death of her brother, Yolanda is ushered through pain, baptized by love, compassion and fortitude of the sisterhood of "Hat Queens." Each hat carries memory and history of life, death, religion, racism, identity, unity, pride, trials and triumphs. These stories are told through ancient oral and spiritual traditions, which originated in Africa and the field songs, blues, jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop and the Gospel of the American Black Church.

Hold on to Your Hats for this stirring, roof-raising MUSICAL about Life, Loss, and Love!

Performances: Wednesday-Friday at 7:30 PM; Saturday 2 PM & 7:30 PM; Sunday 3 PM

Tickets: $35 / Seniors & Students $20.
