The Juneteenth Story

As the Williams family prepares for the annual Juneteenth Festival, they are regaled with real-life tales of how our story of freedom came about. Written by local artist Twana Benoit, The Juneteenth Story outlines the historical significance of this, now nationally recognized, holiday. This poignant and timeless piece is filled with laughs, dancing, and music as well as many touching and illuminating moments. It’s an absolute must see for the entire family!

Featuring a pre show performance by Fire Expressions Dance Conservatory and a different, special musical guest at each performance!
