Choir Boy

Performance Dates

For 50 years, the elite boarding school Charles R. Drew Prep has stood by its traditions and prepared young black men to lead. But times and finances have changed, and the pressure on Drew’s legendary gospel choir is high. So when Pharus, an ambitious and talented student, is told to ignore a gay slur to take his place as the choir’s leader, he has to decide who he is and what he’s willing to fight for. A music-filled story of masculinity, tradition, coming of age, and speaking your truth from the MacArthur Award-winning writer of The Brother/Sister Trilogy (The Brothers Size, In the Red and Brown Water, Marcus or the Secret of Sweet).
