Presented by Dr. Telisa Franklin, the stage play is a powerful depiction of servitude and a poignant reminder of what it was like when the slaves in Galveston, Texas, learned that they were free two years after President Lincoln signed The Emancipation Proclamation. The news triggered a jubilant outcry that reverberated across the country, followed by revelry and a celebration that included music, dancing and lots of food. Directed by Chrysti Chandler, founder of The Young Actors Guild, Juneteenth The Musical Stage Play is a life-altering experience of that sordid era that the YAG performers, under Chandler’s direction, interpret so masterfully with skits, songs, and dancing. It’s a jubilant celebration without equal. It’s a must-see stage play.
