MTSU Theatre will take audiences to church beginning Wednesday, Feb. 26, when “Amen Corner” opens its five-day run in historic Tucker Theatre.
Written by renowned African-American author James Baldwin in 1965, the MTSU Arts presentation features 12 students enthusiastic about bringing more diversity to the historic theatre program.
“We have a good number of African-American students here at MTSU, yet we very rarely do a play for African-American students,” explained professor Deborah Anderson, who’s directing “Amen Corner.”
You can watch brief excerpts from the students’ dress rehearsals below.
Performances of “Amen Corner” are scheduled Feb. 26-March 1 at 7:30 each evening, and one matinee is planned at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 2. Tickets are available at www.mtsu.edu/tuckertheatre and at the Tucker Theatre box office one hour before showtime.
General admission is $10 each and $5 for K-12 students, senior citizens and MTSU faculty and staff. MTSU students with valid IDs will be admitted free.
