Mixed Blood Theatre Presents "Dr. King's Dream" At Paynesville High School Jan. 30
Dr. King's Dream from Minneapolis’s Mixed Blood Theatre celebrates the life and career of Dr. Martin Luther King in this acclaimed production drawn from his own letters, sermons, books and speeches, including the timeless “I Have A Dream.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led American society through some of its most profound changes with passion, devotion, and courage. This powerful biography illuminates why he is recognized as one of the greatest leaders and orators in American History, and why he is honored with a national holiday each January.
Warren C. Bowles’s commanding solo performance is stirring and poignant. Bowles has toured for Mixed Blood as Dr. King since 1981. Among the most memorable of his credits at Mixed Blood’s historic firehouse theater are Lucien in The Boys Next Door, the title role in Cyrano de Bergerac, and the professor in Oleanna.
Dr. King’s Dream begins at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 30 at the Paynesville High School auditorium (795 West Hwy 23 - Paynesville). No admission will be charged.
Mixed Blood Theatre is a Minneapolis-based multicultural theater company founded in 1976.
