North by Night: More Heroes of the Underground Railroad

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

The Publick Playhouse is pleased to present the GEICO Gecko Series, a series of midweek matinees for youth generously supported by the GEICO Philanthropic Foundation. GEICO Gecko Series matinees are free to qualifying Title 1 schools, giving young people the opportunity to experience outstanding performances at the Publick Playhouse. Educators, look for the GEICO Gecko that identifies the performances and call Group Sales at 301-277-1710 to reserve your space.

Follow the journey of brave men and women who risked it all to travel north and help others escape the terrors of slavery. Meet some familiar names and many more who have gone mostly unnoticed by history—until now! This Bright Star Theatre show features William Still, Sojourner Truth, William Lloyd Garrison, and others.

Curriculum Connection: History, U.S. History, Women’s History 

Ages: Recommended for grades 3–8
