JPEK CreativeWorks Theatre 2017
Arts in Action Theatre Series
“A Change Has Come”


2017 Arts series will feature entertainment for the soul!  Our series begins with a concert to feature covers from revolutionary artists mixed with contemporary songs that speaks of  tumultuous times and how we must get over. JPEK continues to examine this conception through a Donnie Hathaway narrative told through hometown talent Kelvin Roston.  Kelvin resurrects this legend giving him life and soul.  And of course there’s our Children’s theatre project, a story of a young girl who finds a greater strength in self through her eager pursuit for happiness.   To finish the year, we end the season with Real Life, a two-act hip hopera that explores the attitudes of city living.  Centralizing main character Ray, who is in fight for self or street, we travel a transformational story of hope and faith.  If change is to come, then we have to get better.
