Monday, October 12th, Blackboard will be doing something new, and presenting this "New American Opera"
Conception, Lyrics, Libretto by: Sherry Boone Music & Libretto by: Sean Jeremy Palmer Directed by & Developed with Tamilla Woodard

ELLEN CRAFT is based on one of the most fantastical slave escapes of all time. Ellen is the offspring of a white slave-owner and a black slave. She escapes to freedom by disguising herself as a white man while her darker-skinned lover William poses as “his” slave. An “oversized impossible American Legend brought stunningly to life” (Matthew Murray, Off Broadway), ELLEN CRAFT is the story of one woman’s struggle to reconcile all parts of herself. This New American Opera is a hybrid of the epic musical with style inuences of Puccini, Sondheim and Aaron Copland.

A 20 min. talk back will follow every featured reading and 1-2 questions will be taken following each reading on Community Evenings! ~Donations greatly appreciated~ For Submission Information, E-mail:
