West Windsor, N.J. – In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Mercer County Community College (MCCC) chapter of the American Association of Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) will present “Miss Adda’s House,” an original play written and produced by Ron Perry of Hightstown.
According to Mercer's chapter president, Lucia Brown-Joseph, the play is a tribute to Harriet Tubman, the conductor of the Underground Railroad, a network of secret routes for slaves escaping to the free states during the Civil War. It will be presented Saturday, March 12 starting at 3:30 p.m. at Kelsey Theatre on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The Kelsey performance marks the play’s premiere.
Brown-Joseph is featured in the show along with MCCC colleagues Pam Price, Stefanie Williams, Tonia Harrison, Veronica Werner, Shana Burnett, Latasha White, and Monica Weaver.
Special appearances include spoken word artist Hope Jarvis, an MCCC security guard, the praise dance team PUSH 5 of Florence, NJ, and Singers Elect of God of Newark.
Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the Bursar’s office on the West Windsor campus, SC 256, or at the door on the day of the show. Proceeds will be added to a scholarship fund for MCCC students.
