    Arden Theatre Company

     

    Arden Theatre Company, now celebrating its 25th Season of great stories by great storytellers, presents A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry and directed by Walter Dallas.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Dallas directs this classic drama that paved the way for the African American voice to be heard on stage. He is also known to Philadelphia audiences as the past Artistic Director of Freedom Theatre, Pennsylvania’s first African American theatre.

     

     

     

    Storyline:

    http://dailytrojan.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/A_Raisin_In_The_Sun_web.jpg

     

    In Chicago’s South Side in 1959, a life insurance check sent to the Younger’s home arrives with the promise of change. This African American family then considers buying a house in the all-white Clybourne Park, but conflicting aspirations and a neighborhood’s intolerance threaten the dream’s reality. The play’s premiere in 1959 was the first time an African American female playwright was produced on Broadway, was nominated for four Tony Awards, and went on to become a film starring Sidney Poitier. A pre-Broadway try-out featuring Poitier ran at Philadelphia’s Walnut Street Theatre, but since that time no major professional production has been produced in the city.

     

     

     

    Each attendee will be responsible for the purchase of their own ticket. No online tickets are available for this performance. You must purchase your ticket the night of the performance in person at the box office.  General Admission tickets are given out on a first come, first served basis, CASH ONLY!

     

    To be seated together you must arrive by 7 PM to purchase your ticket and get your place in line. Tickets will sell out FAST!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
