  DSU to Host "America Amerique" at the Schwartz


Delaware State University will host the JENA Company production entitled America Amerique at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 4 at the Schwartz Center for the Arts in downtown Dover.

The March 4 performance is a rescheduling from the original Feb. 12 date that had to be postponed due to the snowstorm that week.

Live on stage, AMERICA AMERIQUE is the story of American immigrants – and America – 1845 to the Present. From the Irish potato fields to Mid-western farms and New York tenements … from New England factories and the railroad across the Rockie, to the Mexican border 2008…and elsewhere.

The startling and extraordinary production uses music, sound, and seven actors to bring the audience to unknown worlds. “Voices from Our Past, Dreams for the Future, and a Battle that still rages today, the audience will learn, to know deeply, where we’ve been, where we’ve come from, maybe even where we’re going, in this American story, the story of immigrants.

The production is free to students with I.D. and is open to the public with a $10 fee for adults.

For tickets call the Schwartz Center for the Arts box office at (302) 678-5152. For further information contact Dr. Donald Parks at (302) 678-3583 or e-mail at School groups and other community groups are welcome to participate in this opportunity to learn about the history of immigration in America.
