Fantasy Playhouse presents ‘The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963’

Venue: Playhouse

Meet the Watsons of Flint, Michigan: Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta, big brother Byron and ten-year-old Kenny. When Byron can’t seem to stay out of trouble, the family piles into the “Brown Bomber” and drives south to visit no-nonsense Grandma Sands and toward a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights movement and Alabama history. Based on the novel that won the Newbery and Coretta Scott King Honor Book awards and told with humor from a child’s perspective, this play celebrates the power and love of family, even in the of midst of hate and tragedy.

Adapted by Reginald André Jackson. From the book by Christopher Paul Curtis.

Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois
