Choir Boy performs June 16 - 26, 2022.
The season continues with 2019 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, Choir Boy, written by Tarell Alvin McCraney, who won the 2017 Academy Award for his adapted screenplay of the film Moonlight. In the soaring, music-filled Choir Boy, the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is dedicated to the creation of strong, ethical black men. Pharus wants nothing more than to take his rightful place as leader of the school’s legendary gospel choir. Can he find his way inside the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key?
Choir Boy is appropriate for high schoolers. Some strong language and intimacy.
