School Time Theatre performance of I Have a Dream

By Sharon Dodson

The Center for Rural Development and Lake Cumberland Performing Arts will celebrate the life and times of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, in a School Time Theatre performance and separate evening performance for the general public.

The compelling story of Dr. King will be portrayed in a new dramatic play, "I Have a Dream," presented by the professional theatre company Virginia Repertory Theatre.

Local and area students will have an opportunity to view the School Time Theatre performance at 10amET at The Center for Rural Development, 2292 South Highway 27, Somerset, KY, followed by a special evening performance at 6:30pmET for the general public.

This is one of two School Time Theatre performances planned for 2022 and commemorates Black History Month in February.


"School Time Theatre was started as a way for students to enjoy a live theatrical performance that they might not otherwise have exposure to," said Laura Glover, managing director of marketing and events at The Center for Rural Development. "All of the school performances incorporate an educational component into the programming and make learning fun for children of all ages."

"I Have a Dream" traces Dr. King's humble beginnings in Atlanta, GA., through his extraordinary evolution into one of the 20th Century's foremost figures.

Advanced registrations are required for School Time Theatre performances. Schools must fill out an online registration form on the School Time Theatre page at www.centertech.com to reserve seats.

Admission is $5 per student or teacher. One complimentary teacher (supervisor) admission will be provided for every 10 paid admissions. Your reservation and advance payment will reserve the requested number of seats in the theatre.

The next School Time Theatre performance will feature a side-splittin', foot-stompin', musical adventure, "The Little Red Hen," on Thursday, April 14, at 10amET for students and 6:30pmET for the general public.

Tickets to the evening performance of "I Have a Dream" and "The Little Red Hen" are $15 (plus fees) for adults and $10 (plus fees) for students. For tickets, call the Box Office at 606-677-6000, stop by The Center at 2292 South U.S. 27 (at Traffic Light 15) in Somerset, KY., or order online at www.centertech.com.

School Time Theatre is presented by The Center for Rural Development and Lake Cumberland Performing Arts.
