South Dallas Cultural Center to kick off new season with Soul Rep’s The Colored Museum
The South Dallas Cultural Center’s resident theater company, Soul Rep, will kick off its.10/20 Anniversary season with The Colored Museum, Aug. 12-14 at 3400 S. Fitzhugh Ave. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday.
This groundbreaking satirical play about race and Black culture by George C. Wolfe debuted in the New York Public Theater in 1986. This production is composed of eleven “exhibits” of bold and electrifying commentary on being black in America.
“After all these years, the play is still poignant and relevant,” said Artistic Director Guinea Bennett-Price. “Soul Rep is excited to revisit The Colored Museum, as it was included in our very first full season of productions in 1997. We can’t wait to revisit this classic with a new audience at the South Dallas Cultural Center.”
Tickets are $20 and season passes are $50 for a limited time at www.soulrep.org.
