Advance tickets for adults are $12.00, for students and senior citizens, $7.00. At-the-Door prices are $15.00 and $10.00. Every Thursday is two for one night where two will be admitted for the price of one. Group tickets are also available for groups of 15 or more.

Black Nativity: Christmas at a Crossroads is loosely based upon Langston Hughes' classic, Black Nativity. The two plays are similar in that they both, in afro-centric fashion, retell the story of the birth of the Christ child through dance, drama and song. Christmas at a Crossroads, however, addresses how far we have drifted from the tenets of Jesus, the Christ, and allowed commercial interests to obliterate the Season's true meaning.

The play, written by McCree Theatre executive director, Charles H. Winfrey, is filled with music of all genres, including traditional Christmas Carols, rhythm and blues, jazz, and gospel, rendered by a cast of 25. It is directed by Billie Scott Lindo, with music directed by Phillip Young.
