The Lightning Thief
Tuesday, December 13 – 10:00 AM

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school…again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Rhapsody In Black
Friday, March 3 – 11:00 AM

Written and performed by LeLand Gantt and developed at NYC’s Actors Studio by Estelle Parsons, the one-man show Rhapsody in Black explores Gantt’s personal journey to understand and eventually transcend racism in America. We follow his spellbinding life story — from an underprivileged childhood in the ghettos of McKeesport, Pennsylvania to teenage experiments with crime and drugs to scholastic achievement and an acting career where he is often the only African American in the room. Charming, self-deprecatingly funny, linguistically awesome, LeLand Gantt imbues every word that falls from his mouth with all the passion and poignancy of a preacher speaking the Gospel. In his own words; “Objective truth strikes a chord.”

Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience
Friday, March 10

For nearly 40 years, two- time GRAMMY award winning Terrance Simien has been shattering the myths and misinformation about what his indigenous Zydeco roots music is – and is not. It most certainly is American roots music born of black and mixed race French speaking Creoles of South Louisiana. It’s exhilarating and as complex and diverse as the Creoles. It’s also more than just one rhythm and one tempo. Sure, it’s about dancing; “less dancing please”, said no-one ever! But it’s also about grooving in place and dancing freely. And yes indeed, it is also about vocal performances. Finally, it is most definitely dynamic and evolving.

Recommended Grade: K-5
