The Visual and Performing Arts at Grambling State University is pleased to announce its 2012 Spring Semester Playbill. Dr. King D. Godwin, chair of the department, begins the semester with Michael, a King by Al Boswell. Paralleling the influence theatre has on its audience to the influence a King has on his people, the audience is sure to expect the unexpected all while being educated about a great leader, Michael. Follow the path from boycott to assassination all while celebrating the great “Kings” of Black History Month. Production dates are February 27-March 2, 2012
Ruined, by Lynn Nottage, is being directed by Karl V. Norman. The 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama winner, this play is based on the struggles endured by women during the civil war of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

This show contains adult language and content.
