The Yadkin Arts Council Brings the historical musical by Ron Stacker Thompson, “Douglass/Dunbar” back to the Willingham Theater Stage Virtually this February

This production will be presented virtually and will be available for streaming February 15 thru March 15, 2021

The Willingham Theater is thrilled to bring back Ron Stacker Thompson’s production of DOUGLASS/DUNBAR in observance of Black History month. This musical play, starring renowned baritone/bass Jason McKinney, honors two of the literary and historical giants of the 19th century. The show will tell the stories of Fredrick Douglass, statesman and politician, and Paul Laurence Dunbar, poet and icon of the black community. Filled with music ranging from blues & classical to spiritual, DOUGLASS/DUNBAR will be funny in places, moving in others, and always striking and informative.

Due to the current state of the pandemic and in keeping the safety of the actors, patrons, and staff in mind, this show will be filmed on stage without an audience and then will be made available for streaming online February 15 thru March 15, 2021. Tickets are available at at $15 each. A link to view the performance will be emailed to ticket holders by 5pm on February 15. All tickets purchased after the premiere date will include a link automatically.

Douglass/Dunbar is presented in conjunction with the Yadkin Arts Council’s Arts in Education Theatre/Page to Stage Programming, and was funded through grants from the Clemmons Community Foundation (Wayne A. Shore Endowment Fund), the Yadkin County School System, Duke Energy Carolinas, Sheetz, and the NC Arts Council (a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.
