Proud Mary Theatre Company today announces another of our 2020-21 plays: The Tony-nominated Choir Boy in 2020-21 Season.
For half a century, the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical black men. One talented student has been waiting for years to take his rightful place as the leader of the legendary gospel choir. But can he make his way through the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key.
Now, we’re thrilled to bring this soaring music-filled work to Broadway. Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an Oscar®-winning screenwriter of Moonlight and a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship Grant.
“We are ecstatic to bring this powerful and extremely timely play with music to the Upstate,” said Artistic Director Sandy Staggs.
Production and audition dates will be announced soon.
