This show is a fantastically funny spoof about the misadventures of a group of nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia Child of God. As a result, they put on a variety show to raise the desperately needed funds to bury their dearly departed. The performance takes place in the school gym where eighth-grade students are getting ready to perform Grease. An entertaining show with a wonderful cast will undoubtedly make for a fun evening.

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.
