Langston Hughes' "Black Nativity"

A Gospel Song-Play

During the holiday season, the Studio@620 is partnering with The Palladium Theater at St. Pete College to bringt a special gift, free of charge, to Tampa Bay audiences. The Studio@620 will produce Sharon Scott in the epic musical, LANGSTON HUGHES’ BLACK NATIVITY: A GOSPEL SONG-PLAY, performed at the Palladium Theater, Nov. 25 thru 27.

BLACK NATIVITY is the joyous account of the seminal event that occurred over 2,000 years ago on one silent night in Bethlehem. It’s a celebration that tells the original story of the Nativity in scripture, verse, music and dance. Combining the Gospel of St. Luke with the poetry of Langston Hughes, this song-play touches a special chord in the hearts of all during the holidays.

This year’s production will again star renowned actor Sharon Scott along with a blissful company of singers, actors, dancers and musicians delivering a powerful message of hope that’s perfect for the entire family.

BLACK NATIVITY is a song-play with great energy and spirit,” said Bob Devin Jones, the production’s director. “Music for the show is anchored by joyous and uplifting versions of gospel favorites that celebrate the Christmas story. BLACK NATIVITY is the Studio@620’s holiday card to the Tampa Bay area.”

Performances will be held at The Palladium Theater, located at 253 5th Avenue North in St. Petersburg, on Friday, Nov. 25 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 26 at 2 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. Free Tickets are available at the Palladium Theater Box Office, which is open from noon until 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, or at The Studio@620.
