Tell Me a Story, Sing Me a Song

Work
Description

Tell Me a Story, Sing Me a Song showcases the work of three theater companies that performed together in the mid-1980s as a way to celebrate cultural pluralism and bring theater from diverse cultural traditions to underserved audiences. Members of Junebug Productions, A Traveling Jewish Theater, and Appalshop's Roadside Theater are seen in this program in performance excerpts, interviews, and playing to a group of Calhoun County, Alabama fifth and sixth graders. The program explores how different cultural groups within the United States can use the performing arts to maintain and promote their own cultural identity while also addressing the mainstream. A film by Dudley Cocke, Anne Johnson, and Susan Wehling.
