DISCOVERY THEATER: How Old is a Hero?
Celebrate Black History Month
Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
The educational content in this program is recommended for children ages 6-11.
Discovery Theater’s original touring production introduces us to young heroes—and calls to join them in changing the world. Meet Ernest Green of the Little Rock Nine, the first student to graduate from an integrated high school; Claudette Colvin, the 15-year-old who refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Ala., bus (nine months before Rosa Parks); and Ruby Bridges, who won equal rights before she could read. Moving archival musical recordings accent these scenes of struggle and hope.
-EVERYONE must have a ticket to enter; including children under the age of 2 (select ‘Child Under 2’ from above price types).
-Seating is at the discretion of House Management based on theater size and the number of people attending the show. You may be asked to sit in a designated section/area of the theater or auditorium.
-For groups of 10 children or more (ages 2-16) please call us at 202-633-8700 for a group discount.
