Play celebrates Black History Month

To commemorate Black History Month in February, the Black Theatre Workshop will present a play called When Elephant was King

Every year, this organization puts on a play for children, takes it on tour to approximately 35 schools across the province and does a couple of shows for the public. 

This year’s production is the story of Tembo the elephant who is forced into a land where “stories go to die.”  Tembo sets out on a journey to piece fragments of the past together and help transform the land into a place where stories will always be remembered.

Two performances for kids of all ages will take place at the Black Community Resource Centre on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Tickets are $10, or $6 for children under 12. They are available in advance by calling (514) 932-1104. The address is 6767 Cote des Neiges Rd., in Montreal.
