About this event
“Pretty Fire” By Charlayne Woodard February 23-27 at 7 pm February 28 at 2 pm In-Person Performances General Admission: Adults $20, Students $10 Streaming Performance Ticket: $10 Location: The World Theatre 2318 Central Avenue Kearney, Nebraska More information, including ticket information, can be found online at https://cranerivertheater.org/pretty-fire/. Description: Crane River Theater presents “Pretty Fire” by Charlayne Woodard. The stage is bare except for a wooden bench and a young African-American woman. Then the lyrical, lifting words of Charlayne Woodard begin weaving stories of two young sisters in the small world of Albany, New York; of Ku Klux Klan riders burning a cross in a hilltop town in Georgia; of three generations of family love, struggle and triumph. And suddenly that empty stage becomes crowded with the authentic, mesmerizing experience of contemporary African-American life. “Pretty Fire” is an enthralling celebration of life filled with humor and hope. Presented at the newly renovated World Theatre in downtown Kearney, this one-woman tour de force will take audiences on a journey through a world in which the family bond is as strong as steel. COVID-19 Safety Measures: Crane River Theater values the health and safety of all audience members. Appropriate safety protocols will be put in place to ensure a safe performance experience.
