Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom tells the moving, true story of Lynda Blackmon Lowery, one of the youngest participants in the Selma to Montgomery march in 1965.  Jailed nine times before her fifteenth birthday, Lowery fought alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. to secure the right to vote for African-Americans. Infused with the stirring music of the Civil Rights Era, the performance lets audiences of all ages experience what it took to struggle nonviolently and how it felt to be part of changing American history.
 
This project was developed at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for Music, Art and Performing Arts in New York City.  Ally Sheedy, known for her performances in The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire, as well as more recent leading roles in High Art, Psych and The Little Sister (2016), directed the powerful young actress Damaras Obi, and adapted Lynda Blackmon Lowery’s book into a one-person theater production, which was performed as a workshop at LaGuardia.

After sold-out engagements in New York, Los Angeles and The Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill, Fracaswell Hyman (To Kill a Mockingbird, Fences) has joined the company as director. 

Teens and young adults ages 13-22 can buy tickets for $5 to Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom. With the purchase of one $5 ticket for someone within the age range, a second $5 ticket can be purchased for an individual of any age to join them.

Regular priced tickets are available for purchase at www.smdcac.org.
