The NIU School of Theatre And Dance will present A Song For Coretta by Pearl Cleage, February 16th through February 19th. Written and performed in 2008, Cleage tells the story of five Women, all different ages, waiting outside of the legendary Coretta Scott King’s wake to pay their respects. The story starts with college student and aspiring reporter, Zora Evans, interviewing people about the reasons that they are at King’s wake. During the interviews, you get the story of five women who all have their own unique story to tell, whether they knew Mrs. Scott King or not. The play is directed by Bethany Mangum. Performances are at the Holmes Student Center in the Diversions Lounge, 340 Carroll Ave, DeKalb . Performances will start at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $7. Ticket reservations or additional information is available by contacting the NIU School of Theatre and Dance box office at (815)753-1600, or online at the School of Theatre and Dance website at www.niu.edu/theatre/.
