MARCH IN THE PARADE AT ROSENDALE THEATRE JULY 30, 2016 | 11:00am - 4:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Play music racism bullying kids children- Everybody get in line for “March In The Parade: A Play With Music For Young Audiences,” coming to Rosendale Theatre Saturday, July 30 for 2 performances: at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. Written by Edward Versailles with music by Harvey Kaiser, “March” tells a very charming and funny story of how friendship triumphs over racism and bullying. It’s for kids between the ages of 5 and 12 years as well as the adults who love them; the show lasts about 60 minutes. All tickets are $5. Festival seating, doors open 30 minutes before show time. Get your tickets in advance at http://www.brownpapertickets.com or by calling 800-838-3006 ext. 1. There is a slight service charge. For more information, you can go to the Rosendale Theatre website at http://www.rosendaletheatre.org.
Directed by AnnChris Warren, music direction by Andrea Shaut, with its winsome touch and a very hummable jazz flavored score, the interactive “March in the Parade” is the perfect way to get kids talking about the destructive effects of racism in their lives, a difficult topic for many families. The cast is comprised of six charismatic actor-singers. Elizabeth Thomas and Thomas Netter have the leading roles of Antoinette and Joey. Antique Mascara, Cheyenne See, Jennelle Liscombe, and Jovan Bradley are the supporting cast; they bring to life a total of sixteen, sometimes very wacky, characters.
“March” tells the story of Joey, a Caucasian boy, and Antoinette, an African-American girl, who are “best friends that ever lived” and they have uproarious adventures together--usually while riding their bicycles. They eagerly anticipate showing off when they ride side by side on their decorated bicycles in the annual Fourth of July Parade. A series of unfortunate events, cultural misunderstandings and bad judgement split them apart. An honest re-appraisal of the meaning of friendship in our society is required of both of them. And Antoinette’s clever problem solving makes the Fourth of July Parade an opportunity for healing and fun.
The project has come about with financial support from private donors, The Kingston Klock Foundation, and Stewart’s Shops as well as in-kind support from The Boys and Girls Club of Kingston and Rosendale Theatre. Fiscal sponsorship comes through Fractured Atlas and the Stone Ridge Library.
