Having Our Say Extended At NVA Theatre

by The Editors on June 14, 2017

Carlsbad’s New Village Arts production of Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years has been extended with four performances added the weekend of June 16 – 18, 2017. It’s the last chance to enjoy what The San Diego Reader has called “One of the best plays for the year. . . a truly splendid show.”

Sarah and Elizabeth Delany’s sharp memories show us the post-Reconstruction South and Booker T. Washington; Harlem’s Golden Age and Langston Hughes, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Paul Robeson. Bessie breaks barriers to become a dentist; Sadie quietly integrates the New York City system as a high school teacher. Their extraordinary story makes an important contribution to our nation’s heritage—and an indelible impression on our lives.

On Saturday June 3, 2017, Carlsbad’s Museum of Making Music is inviting you to join Alaskan Fiddling Poet Ken Waldman, Professor Bill Bradbury, and special guests (who may even be you!) on a musical journey to Moose Pass, Alaska and back. Ken’s combination of traditional Appalachian-style string-band music, poetry and storytelling has led observers to compare him to both Mr. Fred Rogers and Garrison Keillor.

A former college professor, Ken Waldman has had published six full-length poetry collections, a memoir, a children’s book, and has released nine CDs that mix old-time Appalachian-style string-band music with original poetry. Since 1995, he has toured full-time, performing at some of the nation’s leading universities, festivals, and art centers.

This all-ages show is full of fun, music, inspiration, and interactive surprises. Tickets are $3 for students/children, $5 for adults and FREE for Museum Members. Admission to the Museum of Making Music is included!
