CBTC_Black Nativity 2019BLACK NATIVITY
Cincinnati Black Theatre Company
Dec. 7-14
World of Deliverance, Family Life Center [Forest Park]

The “Black Nativity” originated in 1961 and was performed Off-Broadway by Langston Hughes. The modified celebration of the birth of Jesus exhibits more than just another Christmas production. This illustrious story is filled with joyfulness as it expresses one of the Bible’s most prevailing narratives that took place in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago. The spirited performance is presented with a taste of African American flavor.  “Black Nativity” articulates not only the story of Jesus’ birth, but also the splendiferous sound of Gospel music! The production is a commemoration of how many celebrate the amazing story Jesus being born of the Virgin Mary both nationally and internationally. The “Black Nativity” is a recurring favorite and CBTC is elated to feature a new exhilarating and diverse show each and every year. The production is filled with impactful sounds of music, praise and worship, song and dance, bursts of energetic, astounding costuming, and prophetic storytelling! What a grand experience this will be.

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company
Dec. 13-29

Directed by Jeremy Dubin

Cast: Justin McCombs, Billy Chace, Miranda McGee & Maggie Lou Rader!

What begins as another annual production of A Christmas Carol, soon devolves into a slightly irreverent look at all of our favorite “Beloved Holiday Classics” including It’s a Wonderful Life, Frosty, Rudolph, Charlie Brown and more! Three actors (with the help of Santa) send up everything from Dickens to Dr. Seuss in 90+ minutes of high octane jollity and frivolity.
