On the Stage
RENAISSANCE IN THE BELLY OF A KILLER WHALE
February 22 - February 24
Presented by Harlem KW Project, LLC: Jaylene Clark Owens, Hollis Heath, Janelle Heatley, and Chyann Sapp
A kaleidoscopic three-woman play of scenes, songs, and spoken-word poetry, capturing the poignancy and unexpected humor in a changing neighborhood.
Produced by the Harlem KW Project, Renaissance in the Belly of a Killer Whale is an astonishing collage, a play woven of scenes, song, memory, and spoken word poetry that captures the multifaceted issue of gentrification. Set in a changing Harlem, the journey is led by three young women who move through Harlem's evolving culture: its streets and landmarks, history and renaissance. By turns deeply moving and uproariously funny, the three performers bring to life their home neighborhood and highlight one vital idea that rings true for them all: they wish to establish a new Harlem Renaissance that will embrace the inevitable change to their neighborhood, while rejuvenating the rich culture of its past.

JUNIE B. JONES
Montgomery County Community College
Presented by the Lively Arts Family Series, Theatreworks USA's brand-new musical Junie B. Jones comes to Blue Bell!
It's all about me, Junie B. Jones! (The B stands for Beatrice, only I do not like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all.) This is the bestest musical ever, I tell you! It's got loads of funny songs, and it's based on a bunch of books this lady, Barbara Park, wrote about me and the things I do in first grade.
LONDON AFRICAN GOSPEL CHOIR
"This is where the London African Gospel Choir was born," says founder and director Crystal Kassi. We've turned off a busy SE London street into a secluded enclave ringed by trees and terraced houses, their wooden, brightly painted verandas overlooking a communal garden with seats half-hidden by shrubs. Exchange the UK foliage for palm trees and we could be in Latin America, the Caribbean or Africa. It's a fitting birthplace for a musical venture rooted in community and creative expression, and that's brought African gospel out of the black churches and into the hearts of audiences worldwide.
"What makes us different is that we all come from different countries in the African Diaspora," she explains. "We have people from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Kenya, Zaire, Ivory Coast, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Uganda and the Congo... We all come from different churches as well. The common denominator is our faith, although we welcome everybody."
What also sets them apart is their repertoire - a dazzling reflection of the choir's diverse membership and that includes secular songs with a positive message. It's the meaning of the words that counts and Paul Simon's Graceland - acclaimed as "one of the most iconic records in rock and roll history" on its release in 1986 - is a perfect fit with its uplifting lyrics and South African rhythms and melodies.
