‘Voices’ to celebrate black history at Tift Theatre Feb. 7


The Tift Theatre has a lot of different things planned for 2014, including an upcoming event in February called “Risen Voices.”

A flyer about the event states, “Celebrate the evening with original and published spoken word and poetry from the African-American community.” It will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 7. Admission is $5.

Robert Reid Goodson, the new managing director for the Tift Theatre, said this event is open to anyone who wishes to participate. All rehearsed works must be under five minutes in length. A form must be completed and returned by 5 p.m. Feb. 4. The form can be found by visiting http://www.tifton.net/departments/tifton-theatre/.

“It can be original or published material and can be performed as a solo or as a group,” Goodson said. Rehearsal is at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 6.

“I want to create cultural enrichment events that celebrate and acknowledge all walks of life. Risen Voices is the first program in our cultural enrichment series here at The Tift. What better way to kick off the series than hearing voices from our own community. The Tift Theatre welcomes all performing arts and community groups with open hearts, open minds and open doors. The Tift Theatre is here to serve you, our citizens,” he added.

For more information, contact Goodson at rrgoodson@tifton.net or the theater office at 386-5150.
