This compelling dramatization of one of the most influential and charismatic leaders of the “American Century” and the Civil Rights movement will inspire students as they experience this great leader’s struggle and his dream of lifting “our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.”

The School Time Theatre performance of The Little Red Hen, presented by Virginia Repertory Theatre, will open at 10 AM followed by an evening performance at 6:30 p.m. for the entire family.
