Black History Month Cabaret
The Dunbar Baldwin Hughes Theatre Company presents its annual Black History Month cabaret and dinner theater, "Black Love, Black Strength, The Black Family," at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22, in the Arellano Theater on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
The theater will be transformed into a classy cabaret hall filled with candlelight. The show will feature a variety of performances by Johns Hopkins students, including dances choreographed by Vladimir Cadet, Danielle Naylor and Shenita Spencer; singers Kourtney Bennett, William Davis II and Ekemini Udofa; and actors performing Charles Fuller's one-act play "Zooman and the Sign," directed by Rodney C. Burris. While they are entertained, guests will enjoy a catered dinner.
The Dunbar Baldwin Hughes Theatre Company produces African and African-American plays, skits, monologues, poetry recitals, and creative dance presentations. It aims to uplift the Johns Hopkins University student community through exposure to the traditions and experiences of African-Americans while supplementing the experience, training and exposure of the company's actors.
