This unique theatrical event takes place on Friday 3rd February 2023 at the Orlando Reparatory Theater in Loch Haven Park.
Emotional Rollercoaster: Love Letter to Life was created in 1904 by the Bethune-Cookman University theater company in response to social issues affecting the lives of African Americans and explores issues of race, body image, sexuality, relationships and peer pressure. The ups and downs of life turn out to be a rollercoaster ride.
This event will feature a chat back session with the young artists, moderated by STAR 94.5 FM’s Monica May.
