Tribute to Coretta at Celebration Arts


Celebration Arts presents "A Song For Coretta," a drama by Pearl Cleage. Directed by James Wheatley, "A Song for Coretta" opens May 22 and shows at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday through June 27. There is no performance on Sunday, May 24. Celebration Arts is located at 4469 D Street, Sacramento.

"A Song For Coretta" features five women of different ages who have come to pay their respects to Coretta Scott King, wife of Martin Luther King, Jr. She lays in state inside the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Standing in line on a rainy night, awaiting entry to the church, each tells why she came to see Coretta. Their stories are revealing, moving.

Tickets are $15 general, $13 students and seniors. On Thursday nights all seats are $8.
