Encore: “The Beautiful Ugly” – Legacy Arts Group Return from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

October 15 @ 1:00 pm-3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 5:00 pm, repeating indefinitely

Come to see the encore performance of Legacy Arts Group’s Original play “The Beautiful Ugly! Co written and Co-directed by Tamiko French and her Cast: Moziah Thomas, Judah Gardner, Danielle Roberson, and Antonio Brooks. For the last 3 years, community member and arts educator Tamiko French had been working to bring a dream of international performance opportunities to our youth to expand thier horizons of what is possible for an artist in our region. The American High School Theater Festival (www.AHSTF.org) hand picked a cohort of performing arts programs across the United States to perform at the world renown Edinburgh Fringe Festival (www.edfringe.com). Due to a need to stand in the opportunity gap, Legacy Arts Group, LLC was created. With the help of North Communnity Alumni Association, We partnered with Springboard for the Arts to create a way for this opportunity to be possible. Surviving through a pandemic, variants, upheaval of our community, teacher strike and the murder of a beloved student, we stood fast to share our story with the world. With the help of many amazing organizations we did the unimaginable and brought these 4 Minneapolis students and 5 adults to premiere a magic on the stage that would be seen for the first time in 75 years on a Fringe Festival Stage.

The play is a layered experience of 4 youth voices sharing what it was like to survive through the last 2 years of life in Minneapolis. Giving thier perspective that can be felt in any community around the world.
