  • Fortune Fundraiser at Hoboken High this Friday 4/28

    The drama students of Hoboken High School and their director, Danielle Miller, along with celebrated actress Joy Kelly and the Hoboken High School Chorus, present a staged reading of George Cameron Grant’s empowering play “Fortune” on April 28, 2017 at 7pm at Hoboken High School, 800 Clinton St, Hoboken, NJ 07030 as a fundraiser for its theater program. The show is appropriate for everybody including children 8 years and older and their families.
     
    George’s powerful and noble work is about the most unforgettable women you have never known,  Rose Fortune, who was born a slave, and through a 90-year life span, became a symbol of truth, social equality, and human spirit.

    Inspired by the life of Rose Fortune, internationally-produced and award-winning playwright George Cameron Grant’s (additional collaborations with New York composer Michael J. Shapiro; composer of Pass On the Love featured in Spike Lee’s Do It A Cappella; Addy Award winner for his work on August Wilson’s Fences) “Fortune” also depicts a facet of American History rarely taught – the role Black Loyalists played to win their freedom from slavery.
     
    This staged reading will be directed by Hoboken High’s acclaimed Danielle Miller.  Hoboken High, one of New Jersey’s more diverse high schools, recently took home 12 medals in the NJ Thespians Festival competing against 35 other schools. The judges were particularly impressed with the honesty and truthfulness of the performances of the Hoboken students.
     
    In “Fortune” 10-year old, courageous Rose refuses to accept failure as an option, no as an answer, or despair as a destiny.  As critic David Roberts, Theatre Reviews Limited, wrote:  “Fortune” is a powerful testament to the ability of the individual to overcome seemingly impossible odds to achieve success and to the importance of family, faith, and the amazing resilience of the human spirit to overcome. “Fortune” is truly transformational theatre. Real, simple, direct and powerful, it is the kind of theatre that can shift thinking, wake up consciousness, and change lives meaningfully.  
     
    Tickets are very reasonably priced and are available at hhsnj.booktix.com/dept/Theatre.  ($10 for students and seniors;  $20 general admission)
     

    An article about Fortune appears on the front page the The Hudson Reporter this week:
