Featuring ‘Dr. King’s Dream’
February 14, 2014
A Wyman Series event will feature Mixed Blood Theatre’s performance of “Dr. King’s Dream” at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 19, in the Falcon’s Nest in the University Center at UW-River Falls. The event is free and open to everyone.
“Dr. King’s Dream,” presented by Mixed Blood Theatre, Minneapolis, celebrates the life and career of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This acclaimed production draws from his letters, sermons, books and speeches including the timeless “I Have A Dream.” This powerful biography illuminates the reasons he is recognized as one of the greatest leaders and orators in American history and why he is honored with a national holiday each January.
The play will feature a commanding solo performance from actor Shawn Hamilton. Mixed Blood Theatre leads audiences to a much larger world, using relevant and entertaining theater to spawn a ripple effect of social change. Winner of numerous awards for its human rights and artistic accomplishments, Mixed Blood Theatre pays positive attention to differences and champions access.
