Still Emmett Till
Bay City Players is stilled to announce that we have added on a special production in February 17 & 18, 2023, “Still Emmett Till”. Before there was a Martin Luther King, or a Rosa Parks, or a Malcolm X….There was Emmett Till. “Still Emmett Till” is an original production with original script written and directed by B. Wendell Parker. It is the true story of an black teenager from Chicago, IL who in the summer of 1955 accompanies his great uncle Moses and his first cousin Wheeler Parker Jr. on what was to be a two-week vacation. A vacation that would end in tragedy. This stage play examines the circumstances, bigotry, hate and the deplorable racism that would lead to an unthinkable and catastrophic conclusion. More importantly this stage play illustrates how some of those attitudes and actions unfortunately and sadly still exist in our society today.
