Genesis Theatre Company Presents Langston Hughes' BLACK NATIVITY, 12/14 & 15

In what is quickly becoming a popular Holiday Tradition in the Indianapolis area, The Genesis Theatre Company will perform their joyous production of Langston Hughes' Black Nativity. Sherri Brown-Webster directs with musical direction by Rev. Gregory Squires.

Black Nativity is a song-play based off the gospel of St. Luke, that retells the Christmas story from an Afro-centric perspective, infused with rousing gospel music, dance and poetry from an ensemble cast. Using the sounds, energy and enthusiasm of gospel music to tell the Nativity story makes for a wonderful, rich and moving holiday show that people of all races and backgrounds can enjoy. This is a family friendly production.

Filling out the cast are prolific preaching Pastors to act as Wise Men and Elders. The local Pastors are Terry Webster, Sr. CAlvin Allen, Damon Love, Terry Webster, Jr., Henzy Green, Arthur Sample, Clarence Moore, Donald Hudson, and Ronald Covington.

Performances are at Nu Corinthian Baptist Church (5935 W. 56th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46254). Showtimes are tonight, December 14 at 7:30pm and Saturday, December 15 at 2:00pm & 7:30pm. Tickets are $15.00 in advance and $20.00 day of show.
