A Raisin in the Sun
Friday, February 23, 8 p.m., Celebration Arts Theatre, $10-$20
The stage is set and this weekend the curtains will rise on Celebration Arts’ first production in its new theater at 2727 B Street. The organization that has trained local actors, dancers and musicians for more than 30 years continues its legacy with A Raisin in the Sun. The American classic is centered on a black family in 1950s Chicago, whose members have different visions of a better future as they await money from a life insurance policy. With Celebration Arts’ history of building community around performing arts and multiculturalism, the organization’s show selection brings poignant topics to this new stage. 2727 B Street, www.celebrationarts.net.
