Oklahoma City Parks & Recreation brings the Broadway hit “A Raisin in the Sun” to the Civic Center Music Hall.
Performances will be in the CitySpace Theatre of the Civic Center Music Hall March 2 -12. Tickets are $24 and can be purchased online at okcciviccenter.com.
“A Raisin in the Sun” is written by Lorraine Hansberry and follows a black family who wants a better life away from the city. The play depicts a family anticipating a $10,000 life insurance check, and each of them has an idea as to what they should do with the money. The family believes they can succeed through unwavering optimism, determination and remaining together. But, with this much money and so many ways to spend it, will they?
Building on the past successes of “Gem of the Ocean,” “And Then There Were None,” and “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” Isaiah J. Williams directs his fourth theatrical production for OKC Parks.
