SCHOOL DAZE - Class of 2013!
Spike Lee’s 1987 hit film is now a musical you don’t want to miss. This authentic classic explores negative biases on a Black college campus, and how those views caused conflict among the students. Tension comes to a head, and ultimately the campus ‘wakes up’ to taking responsibility for their own actions, in hopes of developing conscious changes from within.
Fast forward to 2013, Writer/Director Margaret Mahdi has adapted this story to the stage, with an updated flavor and message in this unique and fun rendition. High school and college students are encouraged to attend.
SCHOOL DAZE will feature recording artist Jameisha Trice, who plays the sassy and most “fabulous” JANE TOUSIANT. Her songs have been played on popular airwaves such as V1O3 and WGCI. Also, WVON’s radio personality Terry Bishop portrays the hilarious and bold HALF-PINT!
The production also features Chicago poet MOUTHPEACE, World Performance Drill Team, GREEK organizations, KING HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND and many more. Our very own CBPSN member, J. Aisha, will also be performing as one of the "Naturals"!
General admission tickets are available in advance and at the door for $20.
Greeks wearing their letters and ALL Students with photo ID - $15 admission
