Music and Lyrics by Charlie Smalls
Book by William F. Brown

The Harlem Repertory Theatre’s AUDELCO-winning multi-media production of the THE WIZ will feature AUDELCO Award-winning singer/actress Dion Millington as Dorothy. THE WIZ will be directed and choreographed by Keith Lee Grant whose 2009 production of THE WIZ won the AUDELCO awards for Best Director and Choreographer of a musical. Critically acclaimed animator Edward Corcino and UNIMA Award-winning designer Daniel Fergus Tamulonis have created wonderful video animations, costumes and puppets for the HRT’s new chamber version of THE WIZ. The bold new production of THE WIZ will be staged environmentally in both the upstairs and downstairs performing spaces. The cast of ten talented professional singers and actors will sing and dance between the two floors of the HRT’s performing arts center as Dorothy and her companions take the audience on an unforgettable journey through the magical land of OZ.

TAMBOURINES TO GLORY

By Langston Hughes
Directed & Choreographed by Keith Lee Grant
Music by Andre Danke
Lyrics by Langston Hughes

The HRT opens its 2014-15 season with Langston Hughes’ TAMBOURINES TO GLORY. TAMBOURINES TO GLORY features Mario Brown (Platanos and Colored Greens, Romeo and Juliet) as Buddy Lomax and Kyria Geneva (The Wiz, Dreamgirls, Ain’t Misbehavin’) as Laura Wright. Langston Hughes, when asked to describe his play, wrote:

“It’s a singing, shouting, wailing drama about the old conflict between blatant Evil and quiet Good, with the Devil driving a Cadillac. What kind of car have you got?”
The HRT’s production of TAMBOURINES TO GLORY will be directed and choreographed by three-time AUDELCO winning director/choreographer, Keith Lee Grant. Andre Danke (Broadway: pit pianist for Memphis, Violet) has composed the jazz, blues and gospel score. A cast of fifteen talented and energetic singers/dancers/actors will perform TAMBOURINES TO GLORY in an environmental setting: playing scenes around the theatre space only feet away from the audience.
