“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
Online General Admission: $10

Location:
The World Theatre
2318 Central Avenue
Kearney, Nebraska

Description:
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 a 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.
