FAMU Essential Theatre and Lyceum Series Present Crowns

The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Essential Theatre and Lyceum Series will present CROWNS, a gospel-infused play, written by Regina Taylor and directed by Valencia E. Matthews.
Based on the book Crowns: Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry, this play weaves together a variety of stories, characters, times and places as a young African-American girl tries to find her identity and place in the world. It takes her grandmother and a circle of friends to teach the child about faith, fellowship and “church hat” fashion.
CROWNS runs February 26 to February 28 in Lee Hall Auditorium. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday. Ticket prices are $15 for the general public, $12 for senior citizens, $7 for students and $5 for FAMU students with valid ID.
For more information, call (850) 561-2425.
