Black History Heroes, Soldiers, and Spies – Rustburg
Bright Star Touring Theatre presents “Black History Heroes, Soldiers and Spies,” a 45-minute production which was created to celebrate the stories of Black American heroes. It is best appreciated by audiences in third grade and up.
A number of important figures from American history are brought to the stage to share the importance of their work. Audiences will join the courageous Buffalo Soldier Colonel Charles Young as he helps settle the American West and some of our first National Parks. They’ll also meet The Tuskegee Airmen as they take flight to help win WWII and ary Elizabeth Bowser as she spies for the Union during The Civil War.
“The goal of this show is to get audiences excited about moments in history which aren’t often talked about,” says David Ostergaard, the Company’s Founder. “Our actors have the unique task of researching and taking on the character traits of some of the bravest individuals from America’s past.”
