African Community Theatre Presents Comedy Folklore Play, StagoleePosted Nov. 7, 2011
Stagolee is a lively uproarious story about the comic episodes of a modern-day black folk hero who is “the baddest black man that ever lived.” This classic African-American folk tale explodes with the cultural dynamism of the black experience. The richness of the culture is uniquely revealed through the telling of the story, through music, dance, poetry and humor.
The director of the play is Associate Professor Fran Dorsey, who has been with the African Community Theatre since 1979. Performers in the play are from Northeast Ohio, including Akron, Cleveland and Kent.
Tickets are $7 for students and senior citizens. General admission is $10.
