    homegirls flyer(New Orleans, LA) The Dillard University theater program will continue its 79th season with a six-performance run of “Homegirls,” a play by Karen L.B. Evans about student activists during the Civil Rights movement during the 1960s. The show opens on Friday, March 28 and runs throughSunday, April 6 in Cook Theatre on Dillard’s campus.

    Against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement five young college women - four black and one white - strive to maintain their friendships and find their way into adulthood. In the spirit of the movement, the characters in the play are an amalgamation of founders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee or SNCC (pronounced snick), the student-led organization most famous for the lunch counter sit-ins of the early 1960′s. SNCC was involved in nonviolent resistance to the injustices of segregation in America through Freedom Rides, marches, and voter registration drives and, by 1963, SNCC was a key player in organizing the monumental March on Washington.


    Dillard University’s theater is the oldest Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Theater in the country. Last year it won the Big Easy Award for Best University Theater Production for “Two Trains Running”; and has been nominated again this year for the Big Easy Award for Best Theater Production for “Dream Girls.”


    Ray Vrazel, assistant professor of theater at Dillard, directs the production of “Homegirls.” To purchase tickets, call the Dillard box office at (504) 816-4857.
