Through story and song, Four Little Girls: Birmingham 1963 imagines these four young girls before the terrible events of September 15, 1963 – the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.
Through story and song, Four Little Girls shines a light on their dreams, their times with family and friends, and the trials and tribulations they faced as children living in a divided and segregationist city. A full chorus sets the tone with spirituals and anthems of the Civil Rights Movement such as "Amazing Grace," "Oh, Freedom," and "Woke Up This Morning."
This production is a collaboration between The Black Rep and COCA. It is recommended for ages 9 and up due to references to violent events and strong language. Tickets are $25.

Friday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m.
