See MAYA ANGELOU: A WRITER’S LEGACY on the Showtime Stage

This world premiere debuts in January

​On Friday, January 26 join us for an exclusive 45-minute world-premiere of MAYA ANGELOU: A WRITER’S LEGACY.  

Maya Angelou experienced a life that most of us could hardly imagine and her impact on society was immeasurable. The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is proud to present this biographical sketch of the iconic Maya Angelou. Her talents as an actress, dancer, songwriter and poet entertained and challenged us. While her life, filled with heartache, political activism and humanitarian service taught us to value each other as beautiful, intelligent, works of art.  This production was adapted by Deondra Kamau Means.  Christopher Stewart is directing the production.

MAYA ANGELOU: A WRITER’S LEGACY is most enjoyed by those in grades 5-12 and will be presented on Friday, January 26 at 10 AM and 7:30 PM on the Ralph and Patricia Corbett Showtime Stage, 4015 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati, OH  45227.
