Join us this November for a special presentation of one of our most groundbreaking shows, A Band of Angels. Ella is a pop culture obsessed teenager living in present-day New York City. One afternoon she is transported back in time to meet the Jubilee Singers, a choir still in operation today that was founded shortly after the Civil War at one of the first schools for free slaves, and gains a new appreciation for history and education. See the production that Mommy Poppins called “captivating and thought-provoking,” written by Myla Churchill and directed by actor Colman Domingo.
