It is a rare breed in the southern region, offering a fully operational day and evening school in dramatic arts, including acting, stage design and management.

World premiere of a hip hop Christmas story by Anthony Bean. As the world prepares to celebrate Christmas, an inner-city youth petitions God to change the world for the better or step down off his throne and let someone else run it. The lesson he learns on his quest will alter his life forever. A Song for Coretta | Jan. 16-Feb. 8. A group of ladies pays tribute to Corretta Scott King.
