“Sir Charles T. McStuffings” is an original musical written by Playwright, Wendy White and the children residing at the Shepherd’s Way/HOPE South Florida homeless shelter. The musical will be performed by the children, and their “grown-up actor counterparts,” the New Light Players. Original art by the children will be on exhibit and a film produced by film-maker Justin Hearn will be featured, portraying the making of “Sir Charles T. McStuffings”.

“The children are all multi-talented and born to be on the stage!” states Wendy White. “My dream is to help children learn how to express themselves artistically via playwrighting, painting and music, giving them joy and hope to rise above their circumstances.”

“HOPE South Florida is a partnership, a lead organization in a network of partner churches and organizations working together to provide a holistic Christian response to homelessness in our community. The Shepherd’s Way/HOPE South Florida provides shelter and life skill classes to homeless and hurting families throughout Broward County, crossing denominational lines, Protestants and Catholics alike came together, united to serve individuals and families living on the streets.” For more information visit: https://www.hopesouthflorida.org/

The playwright and director, Wendy White has written over 125 one-act plays and is the President and co-Founder of the New Light Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit public foundation dedicated to providing cultural outreach to the community through the arts and education. This is Wendy White’s third theatrical production with the children of the Shepherd’s Way Homeless Shelter. She recently produced her original one-woman show, The Jewish Nun to sold-out audiences in Off-Broadway’s 59e59 Theatre and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2009, the New Light Foundation, Inc. represented the United States as Art Ambassadors by the 1-2-3 Kinderlachen e.V. foundation of Rottenburg, Germany by hosting the international “Global Gallery” project (www.123kinderlachen.org). During the course of this important project, the “world’s biggest canvas” emerged; painted by children – transcending all borders and conflicts.

Wendy White would like to thank Janet Erlick, the Founder and Artistic Director of the Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theatre (FLCT) for her incredible generosity for providing the venue for our performance; the mission at FLCT is to teach the art of life through the magic of theatre. Wendy would also like to thank Vanessa Garcia, Artistic Director of Krane, Inc. for all her support in the process of developing Sir Charles T. McStuffings. In 2010, Garcia, the Founding Artistic Director of Krane, Inc. was named one of Miami’s 20 Under 40 by The Miami Herald for her work in theatre.

Created by Cirque du Soleil and directed by Jamie King, THE IMMORTAL World Tour is a departure from the company’s previous touring shows. Featuring 49 international dancers, musicians, and acrobats, it is presented in a rock concert format that combines the excitement and innovation of Michael Jackson’s music and choreography with Cirque du Soleil’s unparalleled creativity. 

The underpinnings of THE IMMORTAL World Tour are Michael Jackson’s powerful, inspirational music and lyrics–the driving force behind the show–brought to life with extraordinary power and breathless intensity. Through unforgettable performances, the show underscores Michael’s global messages of love, peace and unity, and the band includes some of the same artists who previously worked side by side with Michael. Aimed at lifelong fans as well as those experiencing Michael’s creative genius for the first time, the show captures the essence, soul and inspiration of the King of Pop, celebrating a legacy that continues to transcend generations.

“The Unfinished Black Civil Rights Agenda -Gaining the full rights of US Citizenship for ALL Black Americans (Where Do We Go From Here and Post-Obama?)”.

In her 2013 article, “Trayvon Martin, Race, and Anthropology,” Dr. Leith Mullings (President, American Anthropological Association) spoke out, stepped up to, and challenged, conventional wisdom regarding “diversity.” “Diversity,” wrote Mullings, “has become a threadbare term used… to refer to almost any type of variation…[while] admirable…[diversity, expanded, fails] to address the historical injustices of racial exclusion…[and] obscures the systemic character of racism in the United States. All forms of discrimination are lamentable, but they are not equal, nor even necessarily comparable, [they]…require different interventions.” By 2015, our nation will have commemorated several of those key, momentous, interventions targeting extant anti-Black/pro-White racist world-views, laws, systems, beliefs, attitudes, customs, and practices. To date, Civil Rights laws throughout south Florida, and across our nation, have failed (i) to end White privilege, (ii) to abolish, what the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called, the “Disease of Racism,” and (iii) to close the resulting disparities lived by diverse Black men, women, and children through Euro-centric Educational, Medical, Military and Prison Industrial Complexes. Even with President Barak Obama in the White House! Accordingly, for Dr. Mary Francis Berry (Longtime Former Chairwoman, the United States Commission on Civil Rights), and despite the frenzy over diversity, “The crux of the problem today is there is no [Black] civil rights movement…[because] President Obama is the prize in the minds of most people…at the end of the struggle… [He] was our payoff…” She added, “There will be a [re-vitalized] civil rights movement when Obama is no longer president….and…the problems that Black people have are still here…”
