FENCES
GCA FY16
FENCES
The Gallo Center and Sankofa Theatre Company, which have joined forces for The Piano Lesson and Looking Over the President's Shoulder, will present August Wilson’s story of a responsible yet otherwise flawed black garbage collector in pre-Civil Rights America who rises to the level of an epic hero. The play mirrors the classic struggles of status quo, tradition, and age, versus change, innovation, and youth. During its 1987 Broadway run, Fences garnered four Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It is one of the most significant African-American plays of the 20th century. Directed by Tommie Muhammad. Starring Greg Savage & Bridget Brooks-Mack.

THE SPIRIT OF HARRIET TUBMAN
GCA FY16
THE SPIRIT OF HARRIET TUBMAN
Born into slavery in Maryland, Harriet Tubman not only ran away alone to escape slavery, she returned to the south 19 times to lead more than 300 other slaves to freedom in the northern United States and Canada. Her work as a nurse and a spy during the Civil War was instrumental in helping the North defeat the South, thus forcing the abolition of slavery in the United States. In this riveting portrayal by actor-singer-dancer-teacher Leslie McCurdy, Tubman is brought to life in one breathtaking hour!

OF WARDROBES AND RINGS
GCA FY16
OF WARDROBES AND RINGS
It is October 1963. Two lions of  British literature, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, have been friends for decades but the relationship had cooled over the last few years. Now, in the autumn of their lives, they have one last conversation and discuss the explosive issues that have driven them apart and search for a way to mend their friendship. This is an intimate look at two of the most famous fantasy authors of the last century, and a redemptive story of friendship that passes the test of time. Actors David Payne and Phil Crowley bring Tolkien and Lewis to life, respectively.
Sun 2/28/16 2:00PM Foster Family Theater
