 “I am extremely proud of these young people for sharing their talents with the community,” said Mayor Andrew J. Ginther. “I look forward to their contributions as future leaders in our great city.”

 Department of Neighborhoods Director Carla Williams-Scott said, “The young people in our community are truly our future.

Renaissance MAGIC!

3:00 PM15:00

Renaissance MAGIC!

Produced and presented by the Lincoln Theatre Association, Renaissance MAGIC! is an original work of musical theatre set to the music of the intellectual, social, and artistic explosion of the early 1900s known as the Harlem Renaissance. Showcasing an all-local cast and creative team, this enchanting time-travel retrospective educates and entertains through acting, song, and dance, paying homage to the glorious rebirth of the African-American arts. 

Set in Harlem, New York, during the heyday of the Harlem Renaissance, Renaissance Magic! follows a family of performing artists as they celebrate and participate in the explosion of African-American arts going on around them. However, young Ella, a whiz in science and math, struggles to find her place within her family’s new-found focus on artistic expression. While grudgingly attending a heritage festival, Ella asks her favorite uncle, “If you had three wishes, what would they be?” His answer, those three wishes, lay the groundwork for this magical, musical journey of discovery through the Harlem Renaissance.

Written by Alexis Wilson, arranged by Karen Williams Hubbard, choreographed by Quianna Simpson, and directed and produced by Lincoln Theatre General Manager Suzan Bradford, this original work of musical theatre showcases the music of the Harlem Renaissance with professional performers and participants of the Lincoln Theatre’s education programs.
