February 18, 2019 - NEXT WEEK'S AUDITIONS TODAY!


CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY MONTH WITH GREGORY!


A new company, Progressive Theater, is the vision of A4D’s Dancer To Watch, Gregory Omar Osborne. Its goal is to tell stories that empower the misrepresented; people of color and women, and to captivate all audiences with the focus on the change we want to see in the theater community.

To celebrate this goal, Progressive Theater is proud to present the The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin in honor of Black History Month, February 16 and 17. The production will tell this story with a mostly black creative team. It is being produced in collaboration with the South Orange/Maplewood Coalition on Race.

The musical is directed by Broadway's Jasmin Richardson and features book, music, and lyrics by the Lortel and Drama Desk nominated Kirsten Childs along with choreography by Gregory.
 
The story is told in a span of thirty years: What’s a black girl from sunny Southern California to do? White people are blowing up black girls in Birmingham churches. Black people are shouting ‘Black is beautiful’ while straightening their hair and coveting light skin. Lead character Viveca Stanton's answer: Slap on a bubbly smile and be as white as you can be! In a humorous and pointed coming-of-age story spanning the sixties through the nineties, Viveca blithely sails through the confusing worlds of racism, sexism, and Broadway showbiz until she's forced to face the devastating effect self-denial has had on her life.

Bring some fun into your life during Black History Month and get your tickets today for The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin!
