Community College of Baltimore County Performing Arts presents Detroit ‘67 November 4-8 in the Center for the Arts Theatre at CCBC Catonsville, 800 South Rolling Road.

In 1967 Detroit, Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the ’67 riots.

Performance times include:
  • 11:10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 4
  • 7 p.m. Friday & Saturday, Nov. 5 & 6
  • 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7 (American Sign Language interpreted)
  • 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 8

CCBC’s production of Detroit ’67 is directed by CCBC Associate Professor Precious B. Stone, with scenic and lighting design by G. Maurice “Moe” Conn and costumes by Sharlene Michelle Clinton. The stage manager is Mone’t Howard.

Tickets are $10 general admission; $5 students, seniors, CCBC faculty and staff; and free for currently enrolled CCBC students with ID.
