GENERAL NOTES

RANDY RAINBOW: THE PINK GLASSES TOUR Nov 11, 7:30pm, The Hippodrome Theatre, 12 North Eutaw Street Baltimore, MD 21201.

THE CHANNELING OF MS. SYBBY GRANT Lyric Baltimore 2022 Student Matinee, Lyric Baltimore, 140 W. Mt. Royal Ave. Tuesday, November 15, 2022; 10:30 am. The Channeling of Ms. Sybby Grant is an interactive theatrical experience that shines a light on domestic enslavement in Baltimore during the nineteenth century. The performance was created using information and research about Sybby Grant, an enslaved cook who along with others of African descent, was owned by the Thomas family. The Thomas's lived at 1 West Mount Vernon Place, now home to The Walters Art Museum, where the play had its world-premiere production. Ms. Sybby provides a glimpse into the unique relationship between the enslaved and master and offers an understanding of Baltimore's history during the years leading up to the abolition of slavery. We invite you to join WombWork Productions, Inc. as they shed light on her remarkable life. For grades 6th -12th. Tickets: $15. 60 minutes long; post-show discussion follows the performance.
