SECC Invites You to a Night at the Theatre

May 24 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

You are invited to join the South East Chicago Commission for A Night at the Theatre, an evening of fun, fundraising, and a fantastic theatrical showcase! Our favorite night of the year supports the Shirley J. Newsome Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Program, which awards financial grants for selected beautification projects in Hyde Park, Kenwood, Oakland, Washington Park, and Woodlawn.
Friday, May 24, 2024
5:00 pm Community Reception | Augustana Lutheran Church, Community Room | 5500 S Woodlawn Ave
7:30 pm Opening Night Performance | Court Theatre | 5535 S Ellis Ave
After the reception, join us for opening night of the soulful and stirring performance of Stokley: The Unfinished Revolution. Directed by Tasia A. Jones, the story depicts Civil rights activist Kwame Ture, born Stokely Carmichael, and his rise to prominence and several people who made it possible. The thematic question becomes: What does it mean to trust someone with a movement when you can’t trust them with your heart?
The SECC’s A Night at the Theatre “early bird” ticket sales are now open.
Please purchase your tickets by Friday, May 17, 2024.
If you cannot attend, donations are greatly appreciated, regardless of size.
