I am incredibly proud to announce that my first play ‘Funny, You Don’t Act Like A Negro’, will have its World Premiere at Theatre Three in Dallas this month. Previews begin February 20th and the ‘MAGICAL’ Opening Night is Monday, February 24th. I am so grateful to Artistic Director, Jeffrey Schmidt and the entire staff at T3 for their support and commitment to this project. A very special shout out to Director Extraordinaire, Christie Vela, Artistic Associate at Theatre Three and the amazing cast and crew bringing my words to life.
That said, I have a couple of special announcements for you.
At the very heart of Funny, You Don’t Act Like A Negro, is the desire to start a conversation and make people think. Much like what we do at Community Conversation. So this month Change the Perception is partnering with Theater Three to host Community Conversation on Monday, March 2nd at 6:30 to discuss the themes of the play. The address is 2800 Routh St, #168, Dallas, TX 75201 This will replace our regular February 24th meeting. It is not necessary to see the play in advance to be a part of the conversation.
We are moving the 2/24 date because THAT’S OPENING NIGHT! Because you are a subscriber/supporter of Change the Perception’s Community Conversation, I would like to invite you all to attend our opening night performance. If you would like to attend, I have a very special deal for you but you have to email me to let me know. This is not a public offer! So email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

I can’t tell you how honored I am to have my work on the Theatre Three stage. I applaud them for their commitment to the arts and especially Dallas Based Artists. If you support that mission, the best way to show it is
TO GO SEE A SHOW!!
You can start with MINE!
We will still have our regularly scheduled March 23rd Community Conversation at the Dallas Children’s Theater
