On March 31, the theatre school will present the production of Bud, Not Buddy at the Merle Reskin Theatre. I know it's not 'till the end of the month, but it's something to look forward to so here are some of the event details. Bud, Not Buddy is a 1999 children's novel by Christopher Paul Curtis. The book is the winner of the 2000 Newbery Medal for excellence in American children's literature, as well as the Coretta Scott King Award that is given in recognition of outstanding African-American authors.
The story follows the journey of a young African-American orphan, Bud, as he discovers clues in the search for his father in Depression-era Michigan. An advertisement leads him to adventures in Chicago, where he finds community among a group of jazz musicians and an unexpected sense of home.
This production will be taking place during March 31-May 23. In addition, on Thursday, 5/14, and Saturday, 5/16 the production will be interpreted in American Sign Language. Tickets are $8 with DePaul and group discounts available. Check out http://theatreschool.depaul.edu for more information.
