PassinArt: A Theatre Company is pleased to announce its upcoming production of Smoldering Fires by Kermit Frazier, Tickets information available at www.passinart.net. (Students, seniors, and group rates available.) “Smoldering Fires is an amazing drama that applies the ideas and struggles of the civil rights movement to contemporary city life. Kermit Frazier’s Smoldering Fires allows us to view the world through the eyes and spirit of our youth. The youth of today are not just dealing with the racist conflicts of the 60’s; they are wrestling with the violent attitudes of their own communities’ ‐i.e. guns and drugs that amass the ever present delinquent elements of their surroundings. In this play, youth takes a stand in taking their community back against the odds of being out‐numbered by their peers.” William (Bill) Earl Ray, Director Smoldering Fires features local artists Eric Harris Jr., Ajani Hopkins, Kenneth Dembo, Shelley B. Shelley, Timaya Hepburn, Nena Uke, Sami Yacob‐Andrus, Quante Coles, James Hill Brooks, Ronald Smith; and directed by William (Bill) Earl Ray. “Oh, be fiery. By all means be fiery. Fiery in your words, your nonviolent actions. Fiery in the way you learn and grow. Stay on fire with determination and the drive for change.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. If you have any questions you may email Jerry Foster at passinart@yahoo.comor call (503) 235‐8079.
