With a joyous inspirational score, Black Nativity is a legendary family show that shares this unforgettable story of the Nativity through compelling gospel music and the beautiful poetry of Langston Hughes. Through love and faith, the story finds strength and triumphs over adversity to offer powerful messages of joy and hope.


Get into the holiday spirit as we return to our gospel roots in this stunning re-imagined production led by veteran Director JaMeeka Holloway-Burrell of Black Ops Theater and Music Director Ray Watkins.


The theater will explode with the sounds of new soulful spirituals and jubilant gospel songs all brought to life by our company of over 70 show-stopping singers, dancers, and musicians.
