Jubilee Theatre is opening the new year with a story of hope and change. The award-winning Theatre is ecstatic to present Aurin Squire’s Obama-ology, on stage January 25 – February 24, 2019.
When African-American college graduate Warren takes a job with the 2008 Obama campaign, he’s fired up and ready to go – until he lands in the troubled streets of East Cleveland. But somewhere between knocking on doors, fending off cops, and questioning his own racial and sexual identity, he learns that changing society isn’t as easy as he imagined. A stunning new play that demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit to overcome defeat at the hands of social repression and financial hardship.
Obama-olgy is directed by Lisa Devine, who shares that Obama-olgy “is a story of a young man trying to discover what kind of man he is and what fears he is running from.” The hope for patrons is to connect with the story and join the journey of self realization, conquering their fears while owning their differences.
The transforming play stars five actors, Lee George (Warren), Chris Sanders (Cece), Octavia Y. Thomas (Barbara), Dayna Spring Fries (Laura) and Jon Garrard (Sam). The remaining production team includes set design by Bob Lavalee, costume design by Hope Cox, lighting design by Nikki DeShae, sound design by David Lanza and stage management by Amir Ali.
Obama-ology runs January 25 – February 24, 2019 at Jubilee Theatre, 506 Main Street, Fort Worth, TX 76102. Evening performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and 8:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
