Kwanzaa is coming, and The Robey Theatre Company will have a virtual celebration of the joyful holiday. Festivities include musical performances by some of your favorite Robey artists including Cydney Wayne Davis, Julio Hanson, Marva Smith, plus the Hearts On Fire Choir, and young artists of The Amazing Grace Conservatory. There will also be comedy performances by Vanja Renee and Stevie Mack.
BONUS! There is a chance for playwrights to get in on the ground floor & be a part of The Robey’s 2021 production season. By summiting a one page treatment for an idea of a 2021 Kwanza Holiday play – with that treatment, each playwright is required to write a 5-6 page scene based on the treatment. The treatment and scene must be submitted by December 1. One or more works will, following an evaluation, be read to our constituency during the celebration on December 11, and with their input, one idea will be chosen to be developed and produced on the Robey stage for its 2021 Kwanzaa celebration.
Playwrights’ submissions should be e-mailed with a writer resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Virtual Kwanzaa Celebration will be available on The Robey’s YouTube Channel starting Friday, December 18.
