Keep On Walkin' opens this February!

My musical for young audiences, Keep On Walkin', with songs by Lavell Blackwell and Joshua H. Cohen, is scheduled to open at the University of New Hampshire in Durham this February.

Raina Ames will be directing the production at UNH's Johnson Theatre. It will run February 18-22, which includes daytime performances for school groups. The play was the winner of the Anna Zornio Playwriting Award for Children's Theatre, which is given out in conjunction with the UNH's Department of Theatre and Dance.

Keep On Walkin' follows the stories of two young girls on opposite sides of the color line who become pen pals during the early days of the Civil Rights movement in the 1950s. It was originally directed by Christopher Catt in a workshop. It had a staged reading in Manhattan and a few performances at schools on Staten Island.

This world premiere production, however, looks like it's going to be very special, so if you're in the area this February, please come out and see it!
