Bright Star Touring Theater presents “The Struggle for Freedom: The Life of Dr. King” Feb. 9

Monday, February 4, 2019 - 11:17am

Bright Star Touring Theatre, a national professional touring theatre company based in Asheville, NC, will offer two free performances of “The Struggle for Freedom: The Life of Dr. King” on Saturday, Feb. 9. Geared for ages six and older, the free performances are scheduled for 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Alston-Massenburg Center, 416 N. Taylor St. Admission is free, and everyone is invited.

Please note: Bright Star was originally scheduled to perform “Let It Shine: The American Civil Rights Movement,” but the program was changed to “The Struggle for Freedom: The Life of Dr. King.”

The story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of both triumph and tragedy. In this dramatic show, the audience comes to see that the rights won by the American Civil Rights Movement came with a heavy price.

This production is part of the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre’s "Arts For All" free community performance series, which is supported by United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County.
