DCS Presents “Fences”

Delta Center Stage is proud to announce that will be hosting a special school day performance up their upcoming show, “Fences” on Thursday, April 18th at 9:30 am. This performance for high school students is a unique opportunity to see local community theatre in action. To make a reservation, contact Tim Bixler of Delta Center Stage at timbixler@deltastage.com or by calling (662) 378-9849.

This sensational drama starred James Earl Jones as Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball. Revived in 2010 starring Denzel Washington in the lead role.

“One of the great characters in American drama. One of the richest experiences I have ever had in the theatre. I wasn’t just moved. I was transfixed.”-New York Post

“A blockbuster and a major American play.”-New York Daily News
Several Day-time Performances are planned to assist High School Curricula.

DCM Presents Young Abe Lincoln

YOUNG ABE LINCOLN
April 2, 9 AM ($5/student)

The Birmingham Children’s Theatre will be returning to Greenville to perform Young Abe Lincoln. From a modest farm in the heartland of America came one of our nation’s most memorable leaders, Abraham Lincoln. This critically-acclaimed Off Broadway musical features our 16th president during the awkward, gangly years of his youth. Abe’s got some good ideas and a passion for fairness, but isn’t quite sure what to do with himself. Find out what inspired Abe to take his talents all the way to Washington, D.C.! This performance lasts 55 minutes. Presented in partnership with Delta Children’s Museum. 

To reserve seats for your classroom/school, please contact Megan Hines at mhines@greenville-arts-council.com or by phone at 662.332.2246.
