‘Heroes of the Underground Railroad’ at library

On Thursday, Feb. 16, at 6 p.m., the Bright Star Touring Theatre will present “Heroes of the Underground Railroad” at the Orange County Main Library. This presentation honors Black History Month with an empowering look at some of the figures behind America’s Underground Railroad.
The play includes secret signs along the routes and features figures like Harriet Tubman, Levi Coffin, and John Parker.
This Bright Star Touring Theatre performance offers valuable lessons for young audiences, with curriculum- and character-education-based performances. Their productions are always kid-friendly, well acted and imaginatively produced.
“Heroes of the Underground Railroad” will be presented free to the public in the library meeting room. This is a family event for all ages that works best for students in grades 3 and up.
