New Discount: Little Rock at the Sheen Center

Posted on 07/20/18 by Stacey Kratz, AARP New York

Come see the Riveting story of Little Rock at the Sheen Center with AARP

Join AARP this summer for discounted tickets every Tuesday for Little Rock at the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture from July 3rd – September 4th (with a talk back after the show on July 31st).

Little Rock tells the riveting true story of the Little Rock Nine, the first black students to attend their city’s formerly segregated central high school. What began as their quest for a better education soon became a national crisis, igniting the passions of a divided country and sparking a historic fight for justice in the Jim Crow South.

On the cusp of the Civil Rights movement, a changing world watched as these nine children from Arkansas battled for their rights with only a book and pencil. At once harrowing and hopeful, Little Rock brings urgently to life the Nine’s untold personal stories of challenge and resilience, conjuring memories of America not so long ago. From writer and director Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, this deeply moving play honors the bravery of these young heroes and asks audiences: Would you have had the courage?

AARP members and their guests will receive 20% discount off regular admission by using the code LRTUESDAY by calling the box office at 212-925-2812 or online at https://sheencenter.org/shows/littlerock/
