Theater Thursdays: Prelude to a Dream

August 8th, 2013 by Chris Furino

TheMarchSunday, August 25, 2013 from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Enon Baptist Church – 601 N. Schroeder Street

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, THE MARCH: A Civil Rights Opera Project will be holding a free mass meeting performance called Prelude to a Dream on August 25th at the Enon Baptist Church. Prelude to a Dream is a dramatization of the tension and uncertainty during the final preparations for the march and the stories of ordinary Americans who planned to attend the march. THE MARCH: A Civil Rights Opera Project explores the personal and political circumstances surrounding the 1963 March on Washington, and will be premiering in full in the Fall of 2014. Until the project is completely developed, however, creator Alan Marshall has been producing theatrical based “mass meetings” which display certain episodes around the civil rights movement during the Summer of 1963. These performances include freedom songs , speeches, testimonies, and character driven drama, all happening around the audience. After the mass meeting performance, there will also be a preview of the grand finale of THE MARCH: A Civil Rights Opera. This scene, set at the Lincoln Memorial, includes several opera singers portraying characters who delivered speeches at the 1963 march including A. Philip Randolph, John Lewis, Martin Luther King Jr. and Roy Wilkins. This event definitely will be very informative and beautiful.

Experience 200 years of history by participating in a guided tour of The Carroll Mansion and Phoenix Shot Tower. Every Saturday and Sunday, from Noon-4pm, visitors can learn about two iconic Baltimore landmarks in Jonestown, the city’s most historic neighborhood with origins dating back to 1661. The Carroll Mansion holds historic relevance in the city as it has served many roles, from being the home of Charles Carroll (an early advocate for freedom from Great Britain) to a vocational school and recreation center, in its 200 year existence. Similarly, the Shot Tower holds major significance for the city as it served as our nation’s largest building from its conception until 1846 at 215 feet. For many years, the tower served significance as it annually made over 2 million pounds of “drop” shot, used for small game hunting. The towers current exhibit includes a sound and light show, and a video on the production of shot. Admission is $5 for adults; $4 for children, seniors 65 and up, students, and military; and free for children 6 and under. Groups of 10 or more can also make reservations for tours outside of the regular business hours.
