World premiere holiday show at Moreau
Submitted By Laurel Skurko
Brian CopelandÕs (Moreau, Class of Ô82) new Christmas solo show, ÒThe Jewelry Box,Ó is currently enjoying a critically acclaimed run at The Marsh Theater in San Francisco. The play will be coming to Moreau Catholic High School for a very special, exclusive event! This will be your only opportunity to see this gem without driving to San Francisco. This event will provide a meaningful way to gather family members and friends (recommended age 12 and up) during the holiday season. The story is a Christmas memoir and prequel to CopelandÕs first acclaimed solo play, Not A Genuine Black Man, the longest running one-man play in San Francisco Theater history!
The Jewelry Box is about a very special Christmas when Brian was six years old while living in East Oakland in 1970. He decides to buy his mother a jewelry box from the Old White Front Store on Hegenberger Road. He has three weeks until Christmas Eve to find a way to earn $11.97 for this special gift. Follow Brian along the streets of 1970 Oakland as he deals with the times while he tries to achieve his goal.
