Juneteenth Legacy Theatre has faded to black after 13 seasons of producing new plays about the African-American experience. Juneteenth was a good child, told many a story (154) and inspired thousands of audiences from Kentucky to New York City.
Testimony to her is evidenced in several reviews: Courier Journal, LEO and The New York Times and AUDELCO awards.
For those who have come here searching for information on black theatre, thank you for your interest. To receive information about reviews, JLTNews, production photos and history, send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
and a donation. (Yes, JLT is still 501 c 3 tax exempt!)
Lorna Littleway is still freelance directing and pursuing other interests in horsemanship, nature and hiking. (Check out the other pages on this website!)
Co-Founder Kristi Papailler continues acting, directing and her work in theatre education. Her current passions include dialects of Afro-lachia and she is a proud associate editor for IDEA (The International Dialects of English Archives).
