Published on: September 01, 2009The Lone Star College-CyFair Theater Department’s 2009-2010 season begins with “Crowns” and “A Taffetas Christmas” this fall.
Ron Jones directs “Crowns” - a unique play with music about six African American women of the South whose stories are woven into the hats that crown their heads and the songs that speak their truth - Oct. 8 through Oct. 18. Adapted from Michael Cunningham’s and Craig Marberry’s book, Regina Taylor’s “Crowns” captures the thrill of self-expression with a series of intimate gospel-infused musical portraits, as seen through the eyes of a Brooklyn teen sent to live with her grandmother in South Carolina.
Then enjoy a nostalgic, classic hometown musical “A Taffetas Christmas” set Dec. 4 through Dec. 13. This co-production, a holiday sequel to “The Taffetas,” is a fun musical set in the 1950s with favorite songs such as “White Christmas”, “Sugartime”, “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause”, “Side by Side”, “Sincerely” and “A Beautiful Christmas Medley.”
“Crowns” is a co-production with Houston Family Arts Center and “A Taffetas Christmas” is a co-production with Houston’s Center Stage Theatre.
