Bravo to Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon and his True Colors Theatre Company. They recently honored some of the biggest names in the arts, culture and entertainment as part of their annual Applauds Awards Brunch.

The spring fundraising event is the culmination of the company’s 16th anniversary and a celebration of their year long accomplishments. The awards ceremony was attended by a good number of the company’s high profile supporters ranging from arts and cultural enthusiasts to corporate leaders and philanthropic giants.

 

Join the Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts at Clark Atlanta University for a Master Class with Kenny Leon on Monday, October 30 from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Davage Auditorium located on the campus of CAU. The CAU Alumnus and Tony Award winner will teach attendees how to direct a play and much more. 

This week on The Local Take I speak with actors Tracy Bonner and Re, both appearing in the new True Colors Theatre Company production of EXIT STRATEGY.

The play speaks directly to the closing of schools and the impact not only on the teachers and students but on the community as a whole. The playwright, Ike Holter, was writing about school closings in Chicago, but this is happening to schools all over the country.
