TCTC_Martin's Dream ImageCelebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with the one-man production of MARTIN’S DREAM.

Created, directed and performed by the talented and charismatic Deondra Kamau Means, this show explores the real person behind the pictures: a funny, intelligent, passionate man whose faith, family and education made him one of the most revered people in our nation’s history. Watch the story of his life unfold — from his childhood in the Deep South all the way to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where he delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

MARTIN’S Dream is most enjoyed by those in grades 2-12 (and adults too) and will be presented on the Ralph and Patricia Corbett Showtime Stage, 4015 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati, OH  45227.  Only 152 seats are available for each performance.  Performances will be held:
