Freedom Train on track for Delaware stop
January 29, 2014 by James
On show tomorrow, Freedom Train tells the story of Harriet Tubman and is aimed at children between grade three and grade nine. The story is told using highly theatrical scenes, and no doubt high quality poster printing has been one of the chosen methods used to promote this event to people in the community and in the surrounding districts.
During this performance, children will view dancing, hear deep dialogue, and enjoy some of the music that existed during the period in question. The story is being presented by Theatreworks USA and is an engaging tale about self-sacrifice, survival, and dedication that is laced with a sense of humor and warmth that truly celebrates the human spirit.
Harriet Tubman was born into slavery, although at the age of 25 she escaped from a plantation in Maryland, left behind her family, and followed the trail established by the Quakers using their secret hideaway places in churches and cellars. The route Harriet used later becomes known as the Underground Railway.
Tickets for this performance cost $6.25 per person. Freedom Train will be performed on Thursday, January 30, beginning at 9:30 am at the DuPont Theatre located at 1007 North Market Street in Wilmington, Delaware. The performance lasts for about an hour.
