Faculty Room at Nassau Hall, Princeton University campus
FREE tickets required
In the Faculty Room at Nassau Hall, the symbolic heart of Princeton University, hear untold stories finally given voice. An emancipated woman educates generations around the world. Divided roommates clash, and racial violence erupts between students and residents of the town. A runaway slave earns his freedom, and reflects on his years working at the University. Voices raised through time resonate with the history of our own moment. Students from the Lewis Center’s Atelier Program share a staged reading of original musical theater works inspired by the history revealed through the Princeton & Slavery Project.
This is the culminating presentation of creative work generated through the fall 2017 Princeton Atelier course, “Who Owns a Song? A Theatrical Investigation of Princeton and Slavery,” led by Peter Mills ’95 and Cara Reichel ’96, founding members of the critically-acclaimed Prospect Theater Company.
Free and open to the public, but seating is limited; advance tickets available starting January 8 through University Ticketing.
