Seat of Our Pants Readers Theatre invites you to attend our enhanced stage reading of Alabama Story
October 17th-19th, 2019 7:30 pm at 53212 Presents, 731 E Center St. Milwaukee, WI.
Set in Montgomery, Alabama in 1959, Alabama Story mixes real and fictional people to tell a fact-inspired fable about tests of character in a time of social turbulence. Censorship, civil rights, children’s literature and the freedom to read are elements in this highly theatrical tale set in “the Deep South of the imagination.” A bullying but complex segregationist senator wants a controversial children’s book taken off the library shelves, but a fearless librarian — no less complicated — refuses, putting both of their worlds at risk.
Tickets after Sept. 15, $18/$16
