LBJ and MLK Jr. Director Aimée Hayes oversees a cast of 30 performers to portray the dozens of speaking roles that bring this historical drama to life. Says Hayes, "I have been looking for an opportunity to get our whole community working together to make a play. When I read ALL THE WAY, I knew that this rousing play spoke to the heart of our city. We love politics; we grapple with our differences and
seek common ground; and we love being challenged. Robert Schenkkan's play offers so much insight into our nation's recent past as we navigate our way forward." Southern Rep worked with community partners including Dancing Grounds, Ashé Cultural Arts Center, and Kingsley House to run acting workshops and auditions to bring community members into this enormous production, and community partners continue to be involved through a series of free engagement activities surrounding the production, including a film screening of Eyes on the Prize, the award-winning Civil Rights documentary, at the Ashé Power House on Wednesday, May 23. Full performance and engagement event schedule follows. Tickets are on sale now at southernrep.com

ALL THE WAY
By Robert Schenkkan
Directed by Aimée Hayes
"It's not personal – it's just politics."
November, 1963. An assassin's bullet catapults Lyndon Baines Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the passage of the Civil Rights Act – a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America – even as he campaigns for re-election in his own right and the recognition he so desperately wants. Together with
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and an incredible cast of historical figures, they changed America and the world.
May 16 – June 3, 2018. See event schedule for performance dates & times.
