For Immediate Release:  January 4, 2016

The Nassau Community College Departments of Africana Studies and Theatre & Dance Present

Zooman and the Sign


January 22-24 & 27-31

Garden City, NY – The Nassau Community College Departments of Africana Studies and Theatre and Dance will present Zooman and the Sign, a play by Charles Fuller, January 22-24 and 27-31 at the Little Theatre.

In Zooman and the Sign, a 12-year old black girl is murdered by Zooman, a black teen. Witnesses are too terrified to come forward and identify the killer. The girl's outraged father posts a sign that rips the community apart. This arresting play has been called as shocking as today's and tomorrow's murder headlines.

Performances of Zooman and the Sign are at 8:00 p.m., except on Sundays, when they are at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $9.00 per person, discounted to $7.00 for those 55 and over and those under 18. College students who present valid current ID may obtain free rush tickets at the box office window on weeknights and $5.00 rush tickets on weekends. For more information, call the theatre box office at 516.572.7676 Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
