Art House Productions to Present IN FULL COLOR, 3/26-29

This March, Art House Productions will present 68 Productions' "In Full Color" featuring 13 women of color sharing their stories in celebration of Women's History Month. From dealing with curly hair and men with "yellow fever" to being mistaken for a terrorist, these women give us a glimpse of what life is like in their skin.

Performers include Jennifer Cendaña Armas, Karen Eilbacher, Samille Ganges (reading a piece by Alicia Wright), Inés García, Yvonne Hernandez, Amanda Levie, Nicole Miranda (reading a piece by Grisel Acosta), wendelin, Nerissa Tutiven, Shirin Terhune Vazir and director Summer Dawn Hortillosa, co-founder of 68 Productions.

See "In Full Color" on Thursday, March 26 at 8 p.m., Saturday, March 28 at 8 p.m. or Sunday, March 29 at 3 p.m. at Art House Productions, 136 Magnolia Ave., Jersey City. Tickets are $8 in advance at http://www.InFullColor.brownpapertickets.com or $10 at the door. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to local nonprofit WomenRising.

The theater is located on Summit Avenue behind the Journal Square PATH and is wheelchair accessible. There is limited free parking. For more information, call 201-915-9911.

"As a woman of color, I'm acutely aware of how hard it can be to find opportunities to share my personal stories and to perform in the New York-New Jersey area," said Hortillosa. "In this show, we not only give these talented yet underrepresented writers and actresses an opportunity to present and perform, we also encourage women of color to voice their opinions and share their experiences. Perhaps more importantly, we also encourage others to listen."

"Art House is thrilled to partner with 68 Productions to present 'In Full Color.' Summer Dawn Hortillosa has curated a vibrant evening of stories from women we are proud to celebrate," said AHP executive director Christine Goodman. "'In Full Color' gives voice to women of diverse backgrounds and covers topics from the hilarious to the inspiring."

"In Full Color" aims to encourage cross-cultural and racial tolerance, a value especially important in Jersey City, the most diverse city in America according to WalletHub.com. Backgrounds represented in the show include African-American, Caribbean, East Asian, Southeast Asian, Hispanic/Latin and biracial, with some women also having Caucasian roots.
