Bud, Not Buddy - the only book to win both the Newbery Award and the Coretta Scott King Author Award - is a favorite with kids 8 and up, and at many schools, required reading for February, Black History Month.
The story follows the heartwarming, unforgettable journey of a young African-American orphan as he searches for his father. Clues kept in a suitcase lead him to adventures in Depression-era Michigan, where he finds community among a group of jazz musicians and, ultimately, an unexpected sense of home. Full of laugh-out-loud humor and wonderful characters, Bud, Not Buddy hits the high notes of jazz and sounds the deeper tones of the Great Depression.
CCT's live stage version of Bud, Not Buddy, adapted by
Reginald Andre Jackson, features Travis Turner as Bud, with
Kamal Angelo Bolden (familiar to CCT audiences as Jackie Robinson in
Jackie and Me), Sean Bolger, MyKele Callicut, Mackenzie Chinn, Cedric May, Malkia Stampley, Andre Teamer, Genevieve VenJohnson
and Cedric Young.
Designers are Courtney O'Neill (scenic design); William Kirkham (lighting design); Rick Sims (sound design); Christine Pascual (costume design) andNick Heggestad (prop design).
