Martin Luther King Livestream Production

January 18 @ 2:00 pm3:00 pm

The High Point Arts Council is excited to bring a live theatrical production straight to your living room on Monday, January 18, 2021, to celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King. The Bright Star Touring Theatre out of Asheville, North Carolina, will bring to you live their production of “Meet Dr. King.”

This performance is intended for school-age children. They will learn about key moments in the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from his childhood in Atlanta, Georgia, and the important lessons passed down by his father, to some of his greatest moments as an inspiring leader. “Meet Dr. King” is the perfect introduction to an American hero and will inspire young audiences to use peace, leadership, and conflict resolution in their own schools and communities. The program is approximately 45 minutes in length.

This event will be broadcast via the Internet live on the Martin Luther King holiday, Monday, January 18, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Viewing is limited to the first 500 people that login that day. Please feel free to share this link with your family and friends!

“Meet Dr. King” is a free event to view and is made possible through grassroots funding from the North Carolina Arts Council. To view the show, please visit https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89380155374?pwd=cUMrc204OVVHL2xaNkRPQUF6bm10QT09

Bright Star Touring Theatre normally produces over 1000 performances in 35 states annually. With COVID-19 impacting their ability to reach people in-person, they have turned to livestreaming their productions. The High Point Arts Council is grateful to be partnering with them to bring our community quality programming that is both entertaining and educational.
