Get your Speakeasy experience this month and support a great theater company as well!
The Robey Theatre Company is presenting a special event in November. The Naked Black Truth Speakeasy Casino Night is a full evening of fun, with entertainment (sketches, music and song), a soul food dinner, adult beverages, dancing the night away, and casino games (card games, craps, etc.). Gambling is not for cash, but for great prizes. There’s also a 50/50 raffle as well as raffles for other prizes throughout the evening.
Proceeds from the evening will support the 2016 Paul Robeson Theatre Festival, which will present new plays about the Black experience. The Festival was inaugurated in 2014, and positive response has mandated that the Festival continue presenting new works.
The Naked Black Truth Speakeasy Casino Night takes place on Saturday, November 21, 2015, with show time of 7:30 p.m. It will be held at the African American Firefighter Museum. The historic site had formerly been the home of Engine House #30, one of two segregated firehouses between 1924 and 1955. The 300 African American men and women fire fighters and paramedics of Los Angeles comprise the Stentorians, a non-profit organization devoted to promoting equality and combating racism in the fire service.
Tickets for the Naked Black Truth Speakeasy Casino Night are $100 (which, admittedly, is a modest price for an evening that includes, show, dinner, beverages, games and, potentially, prizes). For more information and to obtain tickets, go here or call (213) 489-7402.
