Join Weeksville and the Asase Yaa Cultural Arts Foundation for an education-focused theatrical experience.
The HBCU Show, written by Kofi Osei Williams, tells the story of six Brooklyn students taking part in a country-wide tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Along the way, the students reveal their personal stories and grapple with the world around them as they get a glimpse at life at institutions of higher learning.
A public performance, as well as shows specifically for student groups, will be offered at the Weeksville Heritage Center at 158 Buffalo Avenue in Crown Heights. Educators can obtain tickets for performances at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. from February 13 to 15. Tickets are $10 per student and Educators will receive a discount to return to Weeksville for a guided tour or workshop. For more information, including class size maximum and chaperone requirements, visit the event page.
Members of the public can attend a performance on Saturday, February 16 at 6 p.m., with tickets at $10 per person. To reserve tickets, visit the event page.
