Oh Freedom! The Story of the Underground Railroad
a one-act play by Peter Manos, author of Walk, Don't Ride!
The WordPlayers | wordplayers.org

Oh Freedom! The Story of the Underground Railroad by Peter Manos.

The greatest collaboration against racism in American history before the Civil Rights Movement was the Underground Railroad, in which persons of all ethnic backgrounds and of both sexes from North and South came together to resist the oppression of slavery by helping escaped slaves make their way to free territory in the years before the Civil War.

Oh Freedom! The Story of the Underground Railroad celebrates this collaboration combining the stories of the men and women who were active in the fight against slavery with songs of the period. Famous participants like Harriet Tubman and Harriet Beecher Stowe are here. Included are lesser known heroes of the movement like John Rankin, whose house on a hill above the Ohio River was a beacon for freedom for many escaping bondage; the mysterious “Peg Leg” Joe, who moved among the plantations teaching slaves to escape and “Follow the Drinking Gourd,” a song designed to show them the way; and Henry “Box” Brown, who had himself put in a box and mailed to freedom by general post!

Oh Freedom! inspires us all to work together for the good of all as it celebrates a time when Americans were at their courageous best, supporting one another, regardless of background, ethnicity or gender, in the cause to extend to all Americans our greatest, most inalienable right: to be free. It is important to understand that this supreme example of what Lincoln called “the better angels of our nature” is what continues to make us strong as a nation and as citizens of the world.

Russian National Ballet: Cinderella
Niswonger Performaing Arts Center | npacgreeneville.com

Cinderella – Moscow Festival Ballet

This esteemed Russian company brings the timeless tradition of classical Russian ballet to the stage with one of the most magical and well-known works from the repertoire, Cinderella. All Cinderella wants is to be freed from her life of torment at the hands of her stepmother, but she is granted more than she ever dreamed by a Fairy Godmother with some magical glass slippers. This renowned “story ballet” is enjoyed for its lush productions, costumes, music, and world-class dancing.

Founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, the company used their new-found creative freedom to invigorate the tradition of Russian Ballet with new developments in dance from around the world. In 1994, the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko, founder of the Russian National Ballet, focused on upholding the grand national tradition of the major Russian ballet works and developed new talents throughout Russia, with a repertory of virtually all of the great full works. It continues to enlighten, inspire and entertain audiences across the continent.
