Stand Up, Speak Out: 6 degrees of MLK

In these times of civil unrest when it appears our communities are crumbling and empathy for humanity is lost, we can be assured that HOPE lives. Does your spirit need lifted, your hope restored? Do you need to be reminded of how one person is powerful enough to create the change we need to see in our communities?

Don't miss this production of true stories told by local people who saw wrongs and made them right!

This is a 90 minute production where the stories are woven together with songs from musical theatre (where the characters sing of righting wrongs) and readings of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s teachings and writings.

Plan to stay for the post-show reception where you'll have the opportunity to continue the conversation with the storytellers and performers.

All ticket proceeds will go to support the work of the YWCA of Greater Harrisburg.
